Hand-Cut From a Single Piece of Paper
On exhibit at the Westover Branch Library, October and November 2012.
David Jenkins is a self-taught papercutter. During his 30-year career with the federal government, he found papercutting to be an artistic outlet after work. Now retired, he continues to find this intricate art form to be relaxing, despite it being compared to “doing brain surgery on paper.”
Occasionally David applies his papercuttings to vintage backgrounds, such as antique sheet music, maps, or ledger sheets, and sometimes adds things like postage stamps, board game piece cards or seed packets.
