Project Description

Trained as a biologist, Andrea explores themes of adaptation, evolution and the interaction between humans, animals and the environment in her cut paper art. Cutting away paper to release an image in a process similar to her work with dissection, the artist crafts each image entirely from one piece of black paper. Colored Japanese papers are sometimes added to highlight design elements before the work is mounted on archival museum board.

In 2011, Martin, who is a member of the Guild of American Papercutters, earned both a Merit Award and a Friends of the Fair Award for her work at the Minnesota State Fair Fine Arts Exhibition.
