I'm a full-time freelance paper artist based in San Francisco. I've done work creating props for marketing shoots and stop motion videos, assets for packaging, book covers, greeting cards, editorial and more. I've been working with cut paper for over ten years, and love the challenge of representing anything out of paper. My tool of choice is a K2 sized Excel knife (similar to your average Xacto, but fatter).

What exactly do you do?
Because it's hard to know what a "paper artist" actually does...

  • Paper art/prop creation
  • Illustration concepting
  • Prop styling
  • Stop motion animation
  • Workshop and class instruction
  • Public speaking
  • Visual strategy

My professional experience hasn't always been strictly paper-related. In fact, I've had professional experience in the fields of graphic and product design and business and design strategy, as well as teaching and museum curation. Having these varying perspectives means that I love to partner with clients from the early stages of visual development to concept and illustrate a meaningful story.

I'm always up for collaborations! Feel free to contact me for inquiries, feedback, and hellos.
