ulene Har­ri­son, a Bri­tish illustrator cur­rently living in Chicago, be­came a pa­per- cut artist by ac­ci­dent. A er los­ing her job as a tex­tile designer in Lon­don, she started mak­ing pa­per- cuts as gi s. Six years on and Har­ri­son has il­lus­trated ad­verts for Nutella, pack­ag­ing for Sam Adams Brew­ery and nu­mer­ous print il­lus­tra­tions for The Wash­ing­ton Post and Ja­panese Vogue. She loves the del­i­cate in­tri­cacy of pa­per- cut­ting, she says. “It’s med­i­ta­tive, like many other art forms, plus it has the added bonus of not cre­at­ing much mess to tidy up a er­wards.” For this month’s fash­ion il­lus­tra­tion, Har­ri­son was asked to cre­ate a strik­ing art deco back­drop that would com­ple­ment and en­hance the bold jew­ellery on show.
