- Cut Paper Artist:
Angie Pickman -
Angie Pickman was born in Atchison, Kansas, and currently lives and works as a full-time cut paper artist in Lawrence, Kansas, often operating under the moniker, ‘Rural Pearl’. She lived and worked in New York City for a number of years before returning to Kansas in 2009 to pursue her artistic career full-time. She exhibits at both galleries and art fairs nationally, does illustration work, and teaches various classes and workshops.
Her tools of trade are a rubber gripped x-acto knife, acid-free paper, mechanical pencils, a self-healing cutting mat, and coffee – for consumption and for a few stains here and there.
When asked about her inspiration, Angie replies that it comes from "nature mostly, but also something inside myself that wants to continue to be present in and experience the world much the same as I did as a child."
Ms. Pickman visited Buchanan Elementary on October 23 and 24, 2014!
