I am a scalpel artist. I cut out shapes from books and magazines to see what is added when subtracted.

Been currently documenting my work, I've never really looked at each page isolated from each other or only a few layers at a time. It's nice to be able to step back and see something completely different than I what I had originally thought. . . . #emmalehtoart #materiality #layers #paper #cutpaper #pages #perspective #processdriven #process #deconstruction #2dto3d #analogcollage #cutbyhand #scapel #collage

Nothing like a little art censorship to get the creative juices flowing again. Starting something new. Excited about this new direction. . . . #emmalehtoart #wip #processdriven #everyactionhasareaction #motivated #reinvention #deconstruct #context #perspective #individual #process #anatomy #deconstruction #cutbyhand #scapel #collage

It's Friday night & I couldn't be happier than being at home, being inspired & cutting up the next magazine on my list. . . . #emmalehtoart #wip #inspired #motivation #inspiration #driven #processdriven #layers #papercut #paperartist #collage #collageart #pages #scapel #cutbyhand #deconstruction #materiality #appropriation #process #handcut

It was quite wonderful to be included to collaborate in this project w/ @rollout & to make new connections, and reconnections with a very talented group of designers. Still got some design left in me. @chloeperron @quinnneilson @neilsondigital @gasserdale @latidarecords repost @rollout 's #IDS18 collaborators from Vancouver affirm our choice to be Together or Alone through varying heights and hollows. No matter our next move, we are interconnected, overlapping and energizing one another. @idstoronto #teaser #YVRcollective @yvrcollective #uncommonspaces #moreandlessandmeandyou . . Be sure to check out all five (un)common spaces at #IDS18 , all of which serve tasty snacks and adult beverages.

Lazy Sundays are either for cleaning or working in the studio. I tend to do abit of both. It's time for a new pile of cut outs on my desk- just need one more photo before I stash them all away. . . . #emmalehtoart #processdriven #process #deconstruct #deconstruction #papercut #papersculptureprocess #papersculpture #paper #collage #materiality #reinvention #newbeginings
It's always lovely when I can sit back and look at individual pieces of a series I've been working on very diligently, it's halfway completed- and see that all this hard work was well worth it & its all coming together. I can't wait until it's all finished! .

I did an interview with Wilhelmina from The Post Feminist Post a couple months ago for The Women & Arts Issue, it was wonderful to see this arrived in the mail today! However, it was also absolutely amazing & inspiring to also see/read all the other interviews by a very diverse group of strong, driven female artists! 👏👏👏👏👏 @rebeccachaperon @priscillayuart @jennbrissonart @kyborgi @carylannn @wendydphoto #lizknox #veronicaaimone #nicolelangdon -davies . . . . #emmalehtoart #yvrartists #femaleartists #postfeministpost #driven #talented #diverse #creativefemales #strongcreativewomen
Just dropped off my piece for this show! I haven't really shown any of my new work in awhile, experiencing a combination of nervousness & optimistic excitement all at once. This is absolutely excellent.
