This picture of a Croton plant was inspired by two photographs that my Sister-in-Law (Jan Stoots) shot while we were visiting the Franklin Park Conservatory in Columbus, Ohio. I used approximately 12 prints in the development of this. The main focal points were then painted with an acrylic paper glaze to emphasize the flowers. The matting is actually faded and enlarged photos of the original picture that have been raised between sections of art foam and pressed overnight so they will dry flat. With the exception of art foam used in the matting, this piece is made entirely of paper and takes about 1½ weeks to complete.
■ Please Note: The posted photos may contain multiple pictures of the same paper sculpture. The purchase price is for one (1) piece of artwork only.
This picture is truly one of a kind. Bending paper distorts the original photo so by the time I get to the center of the plant I am usually free-handing most of the work. The leaves of this particular plant were all applied free-hand, so even if I make a second picture from the same original print, it will always be slightly different. This paper sculpture would look beautiful on any wall, especially yours!

I am honored that you have chosen to view my work. Thank you for visiting my shop and I look forward to posting new pictures in the near future.

The following is our guide for custom-commissioned products made through this shop:
• The buyer understands that any shipping costs or applicable sales tax will be charged above and beyond the cost of the custom-commissioned product
• The seller will post the finished commissioned product on the website as a custom order and Etsy will contact the buyer so they can submit the final payment as an Etsy transaction.
• The Buyer agrees that the balance is due and payable upon completion of the custom-commissioned special order prior to shipment.
• The Seller promises to deliver the finished custom-commissioned special order product within 4 to 6 weeks, or on a specified date agreed upon by the buyer and seller.
• The buyer understands that sufficient time is required to allow for shipments from vendors for any items not currently in stock needed to complete the project
• The seller promises that if the custom-commissioned special order is not completed on or before the timeframe given to the buyer, this agreement will be considered void.
• Paper Sculpture custom-commissioned pictures supplied by the buyer must be high resolution photos provided electronically to the seller prior to any agreement or deposit to determine if they are of a quality acceptable to the media type. The buyer must also understand that the bending and tooling of the picture to bring it 3D will distort the picture to some extent and require artist interpretation to fill in the gaps.
Please feel free to contact our shop via conversation if you have any questions or concerns. Each commissioned piece is individual and the above stated agreement may not apply in some cases. We will work with you if need be to find a suitable resolution.
