Ingrid Lavoie

Hello and welcome to my web site. I am a paper artist who practices the German folk art tradition of Scherenschnitte. Instead of using scissors I use an x-acto knife. I fell for this art form while spending time in Denmark.

My first paper-cutting was made when I was 16 and visiting my Aunt in Copenhagen. I’ve been pursing this passion since then. For the past 5 years I have opened my etsy shop and taught classes in this media. I have a BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design. You can see my work in person at Studio Hop, on Hope Street in Providence.
