pa·tience [pey-shuhns]
1. quiet, steady perseverance; even-tempered care; diligence
2. the capacity for calmly enduring pain, trying situations, etc
3. constant in effort

Now, there are artists who are amazing, and then there are artist's who are amazing because of their patience. Hino Aoyama hails from Yokohama, Japan and is both! She has been doing super fine paper cutting since 2000 and currently lives in France. I am completely blown away by her amazing paper cut art. She doesn't use exacto knifes and does all of her work with a tiny pair of scissors. Amazing!
I am truly inspired by her work and hope to develop the same kind of patience she has. You can check out her work here. My favorites are her butterflies!
