Angie Pickman is a nationally-recognized cut paper artist, inspired by the early 20th century silhouette animation of Lotte Reiniger. After receiving her master's degree in 2004, Angie explored other avenues of creativity before picking up her x-acto knife once again.
"I knew that it was meant to be. I had always wanted to be “an artist” - I knew from a very young age that it was my life calling, but it took me a long time to figure out in which medium this would manifest itself. The traditional forms taught in school never quite felt right, but when I saw Lotte’s work, something clicked."
Angie's work involves simple, but intricate shapes. Each piece, with it's composition, color, and pattern, tells a story of metaphor and of life.
Angie maintains her studio in the East Warehouse Arts District in Lawrence, KS, where her favorite tools are a rubber gripped x-acto knife, black paper, mechanical pencils, a self-healing cutting mat, and, of course, coffee.
