Nikki McClure

Using an X-Acto knife, a single sheet of paper, and the inspiration that surrounds her at her Olympia, Washington, home, Nikki McClure lovingly creates her intricate and beautiful paper cuts.  Her work constructs a bold graphic language that translates the complex poetry of family, nature, and activism into endearing, positive, and disarmingly powerful images. Nikki makes a calendar every year as well as many books and pies.
