Re: Paper Fiend: Inspirations, Obsessions, and Curiosities from the Web to Nourish the Soul of a Paper-Lover

Thank you for sharing these artists and websites with us – seeing what others are doing is a great way to start thinking about new techniques, or even new materials. Here are 3 of my favorites:

Hina Aoyama creates elegant, intricate images out of cut paper that I find amazing, particularly her script texts. Her flickr set can be found at http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/

Julene Harrison is a commercial artist who works with cut paper. She creates hand cut typography reminiscent of subway art, elevated by wonderful illustrations and ornate borders. Her website is here: http://madebyjulene.com/

The amazing Hannah Nunn started out making cut paper greeting cards, and then began using her skills to make lamps. She now sells her lamps both online http://www.hannahnunn.co.uk/ and at her brick and mortar store in the UK, Radiance. (Store site http://www.radiancelighting.co.uk/ Radiance also promotes the work of other wonderful designers as well.) Both sites are fabulous sources of inspiration.
