• Passion

They are super fine lacy-paper-cuttings done by a simple pair of scissors.

My passion is to create a finest cutoff beyond the level of the very time-consuming needle lace making.

I don’t follow traditional but I am trying to create a mixture of the traditional and modern styles and to produce my own world through this super fine lacy-paper-cuttings technique.
