A professor from inner Mongolia is in Grand Forks showing off her art work made completely of paper cuttings.

Wang Hongchaun became interested in paper cuttings when she was a kid. She helped change the view of the art work traditionally practiced by poor people.

Each piece of art portrays an emotion. The art is carefully cut out of black paper and backed with rice paper before its mounted in a frame. She says each piece has a message.

Hongchaun has won multiple awards for her work and its even been used for Chinese stamps.
