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[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:

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 and at her brick and mortar store in the UK, Radiance. (Store site Radiance also promotes the work of other wonderful designers as well.) Both sites are fabulous sources of inspiration.
