Layered Paper Animal Portraits by Hannah Ellingwood


"Inspired by printmaking and negative space but lacking the correct equipment, I began experimenting with cutting and layering paper" shares Hannah Ellingwood on her website.

New Hampshire based paper artist Hannah Ellingwood creates amazing layered paper artwork. She uses surgical scalpel to intricately hand cut feathers, skin, fur and scales of her subject. Hannah is a self-taught artist who is also passionate about wildlife. She shows her love for the animals and birds through her wildlife portraits. She spends hours observing these beings in their natural habitat and national parks.

Her work can be found in form of vinyl stickers, greeting cards, magnets, buttons and shadow lamps in her online store.
