Maude White is a cut paper artist and author living in the Hudson Valley. She loves the great strength, yet delicacy of paper. Every cut is exact and meaningful. She enjoys playing with positive and negative space to create fantastic scenes and stories. She considers herself an artist and a craftsperson and has a deep respect for the paper she transforms. In pursuing her work, she hopes to make visible to others the immense world of possibilities that every piece of paper hold.
Her work has been exhibited in New York City, and throughout New York, Vermont, Massachusetts, and California as well as across the United States in traveling exhibitions. Raised in a family of both visual and written storytellers, Maude grew up surrounded by theater and books. Both her mother and sister are puppeteers and toymakers and her father is an editor and writer. This emphasis on storytelling, both through visual craftsmanship and written wordsmithing has shaped both her cut paper art and her writing.
