Karen M. O'Leary comes to the Museum Shop to demonstrate her craft and present a selection of hand-cut maps for sale.
O'Leary is a paper cutting artist and licensed architect based in Charlotte, North Carolina. She aspires to replace the common with something more beautiful. Her art simplifies the classic map image into the modern map, using processes that are simple in style but tedious in execution. She currently has three growing collections of work which consist of hand cut maps, ink drawings, and letterpress maps. Her work reflects a love for architecture and traveling while capturing the places where we live in.
