Karen Bit Vejle, commonly referred to as 'Bit' on her website, has honored the traditional art called psaligraphy, which is the art of drawing or painting with scissors.

Her work resembles old church stained glass windows, depicting scenes radiant with life and intricacy.

Contrary to almost everything else in the world today, psaligraphy is a slow art. It takes time to master, plan and perform it. The works are formed from a large, continuous piece of paper and cut with only a small pair of scissors. Every single scissor cut is carefully planned, as the slightest mistake can have disastrous consequences for the end result. This is a slow art of painstaking patience that demands the utmost concentration. Which part shall be cut out, and which shall not?
