About admin

Leo Monahan is a pioneer of paper sculpture. His works are truly original with each piece being carefully designed and skillfully cut by hand. You could say that as a paper sculptor, Leo draws with his knife and as a paper artist he designs with the talent of an accomplished graphic artist and illustrator. Leo's works are for the most part inspired by his memories of life as young boy at the foot of Mount Rushmore. It was a life peopled with miners, loggers, cowboys, farmers, and the Sioux. One sees in his paper sculpture symbols of elements that surrounded him at that time, especially exotic plants, animals, masks, fishing flies, and wild bird feathers. Leo is unique in portraying these images and evoking feelings with the paper sculpture collage medium. His creations are a blend of Impressionism and Surrealism, and they come together to tell stories.

Will New Fishing Flies Lure Visitors?

Paper sculpture so new it hasn’t been framed.

Monahan Puts Down Paper & Picks up Hammer

This isn’t even the new work, some of which will be picked up from the framer on Friday. Talk about “hot off the press!”

The studio is looking like a world-class exhibition.


Will try to find time this week to post some photos of new work.
