Place a Portrait Order


Hi, I’m Laura! I’m a hand-cut paper artist that creates artworks commemorating your most heartfelt moments.

I’ve crafted hundreds of portraits for families just like yours, bringing your special stories to life- in paper!

Here are some examples of the moments I’ve created with my customers:

  • Homes
  • New family members
  • Memorializing a loved one
  • Engagements and weddings




How Does the Process Work? 

Step 1: You share your creative vision for your paper portrait

  • Send me your reference photos (clear & up-close images)
  • I can recreate an existing photo or create a new scene from multiple photos
  • ‘Petit’ details are my speciality. If you’d like a special item or memory hidden within your piece, let me know!

Step 2: I study, paint, cut and arrange your unique, one of a kind artwork

  • I spend hours studying faces, and researching locations/landmarks that I am asked to illustrate
  • I spend many hours with each family I work with. The ‘Classic’ size takes me about 20+hrs to complete, where the largest size is around 40+ hours

Step 3: Once completed, I email you photos of your finished Petit Paper portrait, so you can see it before the next step.

Step 4: Your framed Petit Portrait is all glued down and ready to hang for all to see!
