Continuing with my obsession du jour — silhouettes — I was thrilled to find these beautiful papercuts by San Francisco artist Tina Tarnoff on Etsy.  

She says: “I like the female shape and I like the sense of movement, and I use that a lot in my papercut art. I think what attracts me to papercut is very much the sense of building something, a sense of sculpting, the clean cut aspect of it and the immediate result. ” 
She blogs too!

    I love love love silhouettes too!! Always loved the artistic movement of ballerinas too – even though I hated doing ballet as a child. Would be so hard to papercut as Tina does! Thanks for sharing this 🙂

    These are beautiful! I never cease to be amazed at the gorgeous stuff to be found on Etsy.

    Does anyone remembe the kids’ book series, The Boxcar Children? The first one (maybe the rest?) was illustrated with silhouettes. The last one you posted here reminds me of those stories.
