Jayme McGowan is a California-based illustrator recognized for her whimsical imagery and unique methods of working with cut paper. She constructs her intricate images from an ever-growing collection of new and repurposed paper. Cutting each piece individually with steady hands and tiny scissors, she carefully glues them into place – creating characters and sets for a miniature scene. Staged in a diorama-like paper theater, she then captures the image with photography. Jayme’s illustrations have been used in a wide variety of formats: magazine editorials and fashion spreads, advertising campaigns, retail products and packaging, as well as animation. She is the author and artist of Bear Finds His Song forthcoming from Abrams Books for Young Readers.
