Kristine Braanen is a teacher and paper artist from Oslo, Norway. She loves to travel, and has set herself a goal to visit more countries than years that she has lived.
Kristine finds inspiration in the every day, arcitecthure, patterns, travelling, nature and geometry. She loves finding the unintended beauty and balance in both her work and her surroundings. Kristine uses paper cutting as a form of meditation uses it to escape a hectic every day life. She loves working on personal commissions and takes great satisfaction having her work hanging peoples homes
Kristine's work is cut free hand within bigger shape outlines. She never uses computer sketchers or rulers and loves the freedom and dynamics of creating freehand. When she starts out she never knows quite exactly how the piece is going to look, this is challenging for her perfectionism but great for her creativity!
