Carol Wagner made her first rose bushes in 2003 to adorn a Craftsman bungalow. Unable to find the appropriate paper punches, Wagner cuts the shapes for her plants and flowers by hand out of artist-quality, acid-free rice paper with the smallest cuticle scissors she can find. She washes each piece in layers of color before cutting to create a miniature world of botanicals.

Wagner is one of more than sixty artists participating in Miniature Masterworks, September 15-17, 2017.
