Jagged Little Quill, the creative pseudonym of Kasey Petrocelli, is a self-taught paper quilling artist. I confess I was unfamiliar with quilling and had to look it up. Also called paper filigree, the artist uses strips of rolled or shaped paper to create a design. “My process is long and time consuming, which is what I love about it,” said Jagged Little Quill. “It starts with a sketch, painted on canvas, then I cut hundreds of strips of paper and finally get to start the quilling. I usually have a picture in my head but as time goes on it never quite ends up like that, and I really enjoy the surprise of it all.” In this, her first solo show, Jagged Little Quill has created narratives about emotional health and self-care.
