Andrea Martin is an award winning local artist and papercutter. She received her BA in biology from Indiana University and studied art at the Maryland Institute College of Art. She has been cutting paper for about 7 years and started working as a full time artist after retiring from teaching science. Andrea exhibits her work at art fairs and exhibitions in the Twin Cities, as well as nationally and internationally. In addition, her work was featured on the Twin Cities Public Television series Minnesota Original.
Andrea uses cut paper to create nature scenes that explore the interactions of plants, animals, and humans in the urban landscape. Each design is cut from one piece of paper using an x-acto knife. Sometimes multiple layers of colored paper are used to enhance the design.
