I've become sort of obsessed with the papercut art of Nikki McClure. Her X-acto-cut images are so simple but thought-provoking, such as a bird collecting sticks for a nest next to the word, "Invest." In Seattle, I've discovered that her books, prints, and cards are available at Eat Local on Queen Anne (all of their packaging features her art, and the shop–which features prepared foods from Washington farmers—is lined with framed prints). Her book, Collect Raindrops, features a gorgeous selection of her work and would be a lovely shower gift or coffee table book. You can also purchase her artwork at buyolympia.com. Check her out!
