GIVEAWAY - Jessica Alpern Cuts Paper - Short Stories Hand Cut on Paint Chips CLOSED

Jessica Alpern is an amazing hand cut paper artist. Her work will blow you away! I especially love her short stories on paint chip series.

Born in Rota, Spain - Jessica arrived in the U.S. a year later and grew up in 6 states and countless houses. She joined the Navy in 2000; serving as a photographer and stationed in Yokosuka, Japan onboard an aircraft carrier until she left to pursue "wackiness and shenanigans".

She settled down for awhile after graduating from the New England School of Photography, but eventually gave in to her nomadic tendencies and left her home to join the crew aboard a 36 foot catamaran that crossed the Atlantic and eventually landed in, of all places, Rota, Spain!

Jessica is currently wrecking havoc with her Xacto in Austin, Texas.


We are so lucky to have some of her amazing work for this week's giveaway!

WHAT YOU GET:

One lucky winner will receive Jessica Alpern's four In Our Summer Skin hand cut paint chips (how cool is that - she cuts these intricate, amazing and original forms from paint chips) floating in plexi and ready for your 8X10 frame!

Absolutely incrdible. I just had a "why didn't I think of that" moment. But then again, if I attempted this there would be dots of red all over from cutting myself with the Xacto. Best to leave this sort of thing to the expert! What a stunning and original piece of art!
Enjoy the day!
I love your blog, always follow what you have to say!
