Oh my gosh! Elsa Mora! I went to the National Gallery the other day to hear Elsa Mora, the artist, lecture. I was not disappointed that I did.
I have loved her work for years. She is highly skilled in many media, but paper cutting is her specialty. Be still my heart. A paper cutter giving a lecture!
She is so down-to-earth and humble. I was so touched to hear her speak about her life. My eyes were teary through a lot of the lecture, although I think a lot of that was from just being so happy to be there.
I comment on her blog under the name "Snippety Gibbet." That name is just odd enough, that she recognized it when I told her who I was. My day was made.
