"I'm endlessly fascinated by the possibilities of paper," papercut artist Sarah Trumbauer writes; a fascination evident upon first sight of her Etsy page.
Trumbauer's original work takes form in delicate cuts featuring illustrations and aspirational life quotes that are then used as pieces of framable art, unique jewelry, notebook decoration and more.
"Doing art has never been a choice for me," she adds on her page. "For as long as I can remember, it has been the only path I've wanted to follow."
And it's a path well-chosen.
Her talent is evident in every piece, including two that read: "Love begins in a moment[,] grows over time[,] and lasts for an eternity," and "You're just my type," above an old-fashioned typewriter.
Trumbauer's customers, many of whom have given her a five-star rating on Etsy, have nothing but praise for her work:
"Received my beautiful cards today! Pictures do not do them justice," one person writes.
