Etsy Find: Tina Tarnoff's Papercuts

These wonderful papercuts are by Tina Tarnoff, a San Francisco designer. She cuts them out by hand from a single sheet of paper. To create contrast they are mounted on Indian cotton rag paper and attached to a black mounting board. All of her pieces are unique as they are all made by hand. Her imagery has that fairy tale quality that we admire. They seem whimsical, but also very graphical due to the nature of the creative process.

We love the Jazz Giants series featuring Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Thelonious Monk, Charles Mingus & Elvin Jones. The Cinderella piece is another favorite of ours. Visit Tina's Etsy shop to see all her pieces that she has available for sale. As an option you can get the papercuts framed. She also sells notecards and jewelry featuring her art.

We stumbled upon Tina's papercuts on Shelterrific.
