Exquisite, Intricate Paper Art Created with Love and Blade by Jo Chorny
Jo Chorny is the artist behind Peace of Paper. She creates detailed paper cut outs of animals, flowers, leaves, pop culture characters, and other interesting objects in nature. Using an X-Acto knife, Chorny delicately cuts out designs from a blank sheet of paper. She holds her cut out against a colorful sky and the spaces between them give life and dramatic effect.
Chorny is a mother of three and an aerial acrobat based in Germany. At a very young age, she loved to dance and made drawings using pencils. Everyone in her family are art enthusiasts. Her brother is a lino cutter while her great great grandfather carves beautiful walking sticks.
She discovered her talent through Louise Firchau, aka Paper Panda, from whom she buys most of her supplies.
