Stark contrast in muted tones combine to create a rustic country feel on each print, double matted and framed under glass for instant decorating in any room. While similar in color scheme and location choice, each print evokes a unique sensation. Old Red Gingerbread evokes a calm, almost silent feeling while Big Wheel conveys a sense of motion, and working structures in this winter wonderland.

Maine Artist Nancy Michalak

Using silhouette paper and intricate scissor work, as inspired by Scherenschnitte (a German paper cutting technique), Nancy creates the original pieces, which are then reproduced here in stunning quality for display in your home.

Although these prints feature cool colors of white and blue, the warmth exuded by their imagery will warm your heart and your home this winter. Winter Moon, Hope, and Skaters at Dusk will all add a special touch to any wall all all year long.

Peculiar Encounter Print Owl Smooch Print

Artist Bonnie Mohr

A friendly looking horse, attached to his owner’s buggy, does not seem to mind the cold weather on this night. Inside the house we see light emitting from every window as the residents sit down with a warm cup of tea or soup to keep the chill out. Large deciduous trees in the background still hold onto a majority of their leaves, but the evergreens stand tall with deep green boughs ready to brace the season. White snow becomes a swirling kaleidoscope of color as the sun reflects off of the landscape.Artist Bonnie Mohr is best known for her paintings of one of the favored farm animals, cows. She captures rural, American country scenes, creates inspirational paintings, and reminds us all to stop and enjoy the beauty that life has to offer.

New Winter Wall Decor – Maine Artist Nancy Michalak

Friday, February 8th, 2013

Well we sure are having our biggest snowstorm of the season here in the Northeast, even expecting over 2ft of snow in some parts, of Maine. And while many may not appreciate this harsh winter weather, many admire at its beauty. Here we feature new artwork by artist Nancy Michalak, highlighting the magic of falling snow and icy cold, winter’s air.

Winter Blues

Pictured here to the left is our Hope Papercut Art Print. ‘Hope is set free’ as a small girl reaches to the sky with a fluttering bird resting on her hand. Beautiful pink and gold flowers appear to float around her head, as we notice the amazing design detail in her dress, as well as the arched canopy in the image. Below we show another framed print by this artist, titled Winter Moon. Two cats gaze out the window at a moonlit, snow covered ground where birds rest on barren trees. Both examples of papercut art are reproductions of Nancy’s original work, through customers should note the amazing detail in color is not sacrificed. Rich hues of blue and crisp whites combine to bring the winter themed prints to life.

What is Papercut Art?

Using black silhouette paper and intricate scissor work, this art form is modeled after Scherenschnitte, a German paper cutting technique. Contrasting with the black cut out overlay, is a background collage of Nancy’s choice of paper; in the case of the two items shown here, light blue, white, and copper tones are used. The style is a little bit folk art, though overall is a striking modern piece of mixed media wall art that brings a distinctive feel to your home decor. These prints can be hung traditionally on your wall or can be displayed as a tabletop photo with its easel stand back; made in the USA.

About the Artist

Nancy Michalak, is a Maine artist currently residing in Cumberland. Nancy now teaches art in Gray-New Gloucester, and it was actually her 6th grade students that prompted her interest in papercutting during a lesson in symmetry. Attending the University of New Hampshire, this talented artist has had her work featured on the cover of Instructor Magazine. She also has participated in numerous shows across the United States, and her work is on display at a variety of prestigious galleries; including the Everson Gallery in Syracuse, New York and the Society of Arts and Crafts in Boston.

Nancy’s personal business, Shady Run Studios, with the addition of her silhouette art, has proven very successful. We are pleased to now share her talent with our customers here at Sturbridge Yankee Workshop. Nancy has experimented with many art mediums throughout her artistic career, but her latest venture of papercutting, has given her the recognition she deserves.
