Looks to be a form of gouaches decoupes or paper cutouts, popular with Matisse in his later years, and in traditional Japanese art, where it is known as 切り絵, or kirie. I really like the account sheets full of emptiness.

She must've gone through a helluva lot of xacto blades to keep them sharp enough to do the ledgers without tearing.

Makes my xacto hand hurt just looking at them. Still, lovely and inspiring nonetheless. Thanks for this.
