Etsy Artist of the Week

This week's artist is PaperCutsByJoe. This one is my favorites:

Message from the artist:
Inspired by a Charles Ashbee necklace (1896-1903) and a William Morris tapestry (1877). The overall look is based on a traditional Wycinanki (Polish Papercutting) papercut. Wycinanki cuts are typically created by stacking layeres of color paper cutouts on a black papercut background. My first color piece! 18x18 unframed.  Each of my designs are original, one of a kind pieces, cut by hand from a single sheet of black paper and mounted to white mat board.
