Complete Women’s Wisdom Project Series

Women’s Wisdom Project is a collection of portraits and profiles that I started in 2018. The goal is the showcase the wisdom of inspiring, insightful women by making 100 papercut portraits. Each portrait is hand cut from a single piece of paper.

You can see the list of women profiled, as well as read some of the  archives of some of the profiles, and I also post about the project on my Instagram feed.

Here are all of the Women’s Wisdom Project papercuts that I have completed so far. Current count: 95/100.
