North Shore artist Shula Klinger works with card stock, glue and a bunch of nifty cutting tools. After scanning her art at high resolution, her images are printed by Fingerpress, on the North Shore. “I’ve always been a bit of a square,” she says. “This format suits me.”
It all started with diggers when her two-year-old son discovered construction equipment. After drawing 473 front-loaders, skid steers and face shovels, Shula stuck 12 vehicles in a frame and thought that was the end of it. If she hadn’t posted a photo of it on Facebook, it might have been. The diggers were followed by sailboats, butterflies, pirates, ladybugs, paragliders, owls and others.
Shula’s work has shipped across Canada and to buyers in England, the USA and France. It is also available at lower mainland retailers (may I give you a link to a page called “where to buy it”?).
Her work has been described by parents as “vibrant and whimsical” and by her family as “all those teeny tiny bits of paper on the dining table.”
