Stained Glass – Giraffe by Cheri McGee
These unique, one of a kind art panels are created by cutting and layering hundreds of colored card stock, construction and exotic papers. All compositions are original, exhibiting a whimsical relationship between design and color. Cheri has developed a masterful control over a simple pair of scissors. She refers to her unique brand of art as “painting with paper” and adds that painting with oils may be easier! Her folk art style Vintage Villages can require weeks of cutting and layering to create one panel.
