Much like the rest of the world, I’ve been quite obsessed with Disney’s Frozen. I couldn’t help but illustrating the beautifully designed sisters myself. Made from acid free cut paper, acrylic paint, and acid free archival glue. The original framed (but not under glass) pieces and prints are available in my etsy shop! I hope you like them as much as I loved making them!

Prints and originals available in my etsy shop now!

Hi Friend!! Thank you so much, you’re too sweet! <3

My approach is mostly just a “go with the flow.” I usually let my frame inspire me, I keep a large stock of them at all times. Some have a lot of depth, some have just a tiny bit, some are shadow boxes, and some have mats (some don’t). My favorites have a little bit of depth and are framed with a double mat (ie the green unicorn).  I do my final drawing the size of the final artwork. It’s all about composition, just like any illustration! 

Here’s a time lapse video I did of one of my pieces, you can kind of get an idea of how I work from this!

An original cut paper piece, this time of a forest unicorn! Frame size is 10x10. Artwork size is approximately 5.5x5.5. 

It’s now up for sale in my etsy shop!

I wanted to share a piece I was commissioned to do, and I was very very excited to work on. I was commissioned to do a 13x19 canvas painting for a baby nursery that was Lion King themed. Those who know me know how much I adore that movie, so a commission like this was extra special.
I hope you enjoy!

Looking for inspiration!

What would you guys like to see from me, illustration wise? I’m looking for subject matter for some paper pieces! Leave any suggestion in my ask!

Made a quick recording of me working on one of my cut paper illustrations (the final piece will be posted shortly). This one was a speed test to just get back in the swing of creating. I hope to do more of these, this one was kind of an experiment with a new camera I picked up. Anyway, a glimpse into my cut paper process! This one took about 90 minutes to construct!

I’ve never been to Paris, but I imagine the bakeries there smell delicious…

You’re literally the sweetest thing ever. You made my day, thank you so much! I love your work too, so whimsical and lovely!

A commission of Scar from The Lion King. I gotta admit this was a blast. I rarely do fan art, but to be asked to draw one of my favorite characters it was impossible to say no.

foreverafox said: Caroline! I just wanted to say your paper art is so lovely and one of my absolute favourite <3 I was wondering if you had any tips on paper art and what materials you use? Is it just regular construction or something? I really wanted to experiment this break and go outside my comfort zone so I thought i'd give a shot at paper art! Thanks darling <3

You have absolutely made my night!!! <3 Thank you sweet pea! I’m loving your drawings, school is really pushing your stuff to a great place!! :)

I use heavy card stock, anything acid free works for me! I have a constantly growing collection here that I pick up whenever I see a color or texture I like. Scrapbooking card stock is my usual go to. A liquid acid free glue is my usual, I know of plenty of cut paper artists who use glue sticks but I cannot stand using them. It just depends on what you’re comfortable with. Just remember acid free everything, otherwise it will fade away and not last very long. Also, keep the final product out of direct sunlight. :)
