Finely crafted paper cut illustrations of yourself and your favourite people, hand made to order by Laura Sayers.
An original portrait that perfectly captures a person's individuality is the ultimate thoughtful gift for a loved one. With bright colours, clean shapes and neat details all made out of paper, these tiny little versions of the people closest to you will be treasured for a long time to come. Carefully designed and hand cut by Laura in her Glasgow studio, each piece takes time and patience and is all done with a simple pair of scissors. The novelty of being able to hold a final illustration in your hands as well as the detail and care put into in every layer make these portraits truly special and completely unique.
After you've placed your order I'll be in touch shortly to ask you a few questions about the specifics of your paper piece. Simply upload a good quality photo to your order enquiry of the person you'd like to have illustrated, preferably from side on but a mug shot works too, and I'll do my best to get a good likeness. This will also be an opportunity to specify any colours you'd like to be included for clothing, or any other special details - no details are too small! The quicker you get your photos to me, the quicker I can make your portrait and get it in the post to you.
