Baltimore artists at 2014 American Craft Council show [Pictures]
The American Craft Council Show runs Feb. 21-23 at the Baltimore Convention Center, 1 W. Pratt St. Of the 650 participating artists this year, 13 live and work in Baltimore. We talked to four of those artists, each working in different areas of the craft world, to learn more about what inspires their work and discuss what they plan to show. -- Jaclyn Peiser, The Baltimore Sun

Howe, 34, moved to Baltimore from Rhode Island to attend undergrad school at MICA. After 10 years of cutting silhouettes of shadow puppets for an organization called Nana Projects, the Hamilton resident began transferring those skills to paper cutting and quickly realized its potential as a full-time business opportunity.
She explains that her work often showcases Baltimore's architecture; but other times she enjoys using her exacto knives and razor blades to cut animals and woodlands. Her pieces for the show will be of similar style but on a much larger scale.
