LA-based artist Bovey Lee turns paper into works of magic. Using Chinese rice paper, she creates intricate paper cutouts, employing a technique she describes as “drawing with a knife.” Her creative process is both traditional and modern, relying on Chinese paper cutting techniques alongside digital helpers. https://www.instagram.com/p/B16aiBVnzed/?utm_source=ig_embed Her creative process...
Born and raised in Mumbai, India, Sabeena Karnik has always known she wanted to pursue a career in art. “I have always had a very keen interest in beautiful writing, calligraphy, be it the names of my family, friends, and even people I idolized,” she explained in an interview with All Things Paper.
For creative duo JUDiTH+ROLFE a piece of paper provides an endless source of inspiration and resourcefulness.

Merill Comeau finds beauty in the discarded: secondhand clothes, paper ephemera, and vintage linens - all those disparate materials that were once utile and now forgotten. https://www.instagram.com/p/Bn9_rskhI_4/?utm_source=ig_embed Her creative process relies on deconstructing and then – reconstructing, altering the materials to create new forms of art. Those include (but...
When it comes to her art, Anouk Desloges goes wherever the needle and thread take her. Trained originally as a sculptor, the choice to incorporate textile into her work wasn't a conscious one. Born in a textile factory in Québec, Canada, to parents who were garment manufacturers, you could say that Desloges grew up on textiles.
