we love: hand cut paper pet portraits by Julia Linsteadt


Julia Linsteadt creates beautiful portraits of your pets with nothing but paper and scissors – she puts a new spin on an age-old technique, and her eye for graphic shapes, light, and line is fabulous. We’re smitten! Find her work and commission a portrait of your own pet at her shop here and on Etsy.
