Karen Bit Vejle - Psaligrafi

Psaligrafi literally means to draw or paint with scissors, in other words, the Art of Patience.

Karen Bit Vejle's papercuts are performed from a large, continous piece of paper that is folded one, two and three times and then cut using only a pair of scissors.

Every cut is carefully planned and the slightest mistake would mean disastrous results.
