One Piece Of My Papercut Art Takes Up To 80 Hours To Make

My name is Rosa Leff and I’m a papercut artist from Philadelphia who draws inspiration from things that are both beautiful and grotesque.

All of my papercuts are meticulously cut by hand from a single sheet of paper in a process that can take as much as 80 hours for a single composition. The decision about what to cut is most often made based on what I’m currently reading, with source material drawn from etchings, comics, photography and other mediums in addition to original drawings.
