Women’s Wisdom Project

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 archives of some of the profiles here, and I also post about the project on my Instagram feed.
