Melinda Fabian is an artist and illustrator who’s won awards for her work in the past. She creates these amazing 3-D paper animals that look incredibly realistic with tactile fur and feathers.
“Melinda’s signature art features paper sculpture designs, which combine watercolor and gouache illustrations and three-dimensional hand-sculpted paper elements into one-of-a-kind art pieces. These new designs literally jump off the page, causing viewers to do a double take upon realizing they’re not just flat paintings,” we read on her website.
Fabian used to create watercolor art before she switched to making paper sculptures. It all happened in the middle of her fight with cancer when she lost the will to continue with illustration, but she got to explore other art options.
