Canopy by Sue Selbie

Sue’s love of color and nature began at a young age, when she was wandering the British countryside. She now enjoys translating her photographs of Portland and the Pacific Northwest into multi-layered 3D paper cuts—as seen in this show’s example, “Canopy.” Over the last few months, she has spent time playing with color and pattern on paste paper, creating several new notebooks and journals for the current show. You can see more of her work at greenstitch.com and on Instagram @greenstitchpdx.
