About Mono Ahn

Mono (Sooeun) Ahn is an award-winning professional illustrator and paper cut artist. After working as an animator and studying textile design in South Korea, Mono immigrated to Canada. In 2013 she realized her dream of completing an Honours Bachelor of Arts Illustration degree from Sheridan College. Mono also received Sheridan’s 2013 Applied Arts Student Award for Children’s Illustration.
After graduation, Mono realized another dream by opening her own business, called Silkpulp. Her current passion is the art of paper cut illustration: intricate designs painstakingly carved with a surgical blade, requiring both patience and a steady-hand.
Silkpulp’s speciality is paper cut greeting cards, posters and custom illustrations. Mono’s organic designs imagine a whimsical universe of fluid organic shapes and colourful forest creatures. A magical land, where trees and flowers replace skyscrapers and subways, and where animals with big personalities seem ready to leap right off the page.

100% Handmade

All Silkpulp products & designs are created by artist Mono Ahn. There is no use of machines  to create these pieces(no die-cut, no laser cut, not even scissors)  meaning everything is done first by HAND (either cut illustration or pen and ink drawings),  then can be scanned to make printed greeting cards and art prints. 

We even make envelopes ONLY for original hand cut greeting cards.

If a more personal touch is needed we are fully capable to handle commission work as well. If you are looking for a special gift, I encourage you to send me an email and I will do my best to make magic for you:)
