Happy Friday everyone! I just found this interview online of one of my favorite artists, Nikki McClure. Nikki lives and works in Olympia, Washington and is best know for her painstakingly intricate paper-cuts. Nikki uses an exacto knife and a single sheet of paper to cut out complex images that speak to ideas of motherhood, nature and activism. I know she's also done some mixed media work with letterpress as well. The video interview below totally speaks to many of the reasons why I enjoy being an artist myself and to why I love living in the Pacific Northwest. Anyway, if you aren't already familiar with her work, you ought to check out the video below, as well as her website. Have a fantastic weekend!
