About Nancy Michalak

Inspired by the rich and diverse history of the folk art Scherenschnitte, a German paper cutting technique, my work melds this traditional artform with an innovative use of an underlying collage, adding color and dimension of my work. Additionally, colored paper is applied to the surface of the cutout creating a richness of color lacking in traditional technique.

Using silhouette paper and scissors, my designs are drawn and cut as one piece. The challenges of designing a piece is how much detail can be achieved as well as, the consideration of the impact of positive and negative space on the composition.

The scope and diversity of my work includes multilayer traditional valentines, holiday and seasonal themes and pictorial compostions of children. Please see my Website at as well as
