I stumbled upon the website of Julene Harrison today who specializes in hand-cut paper art illustrations. She has been commissioned by Wal-Mart, Money Magazine, Samuel Adams, and many more. I was impressed by Julene's work and appreciate companies using handmade artwork in their advertising.
I have always had a love of beautiful paper and the art that can be created with it. So many people think that fine or homemade art is an art that is dying, but it shouldn't be. I don't think we as a culture should ever stop making beautifully hand work. The difficulty today however, is how to make handmade work with exquisit quality and convince others it is worth the extra dollars.
