A true paper artist can elevate a flat piece of paper into a marvelous work of art. Such are Sam Pierpoint’s creations. Based in the rural countryside of the Mendip Hills, just south of Bristol UK, she directs, designs, cuts, and handcrafts all of her creations and regularly collaborates with talented designers, photographers, videographers and production companies to produce her eye-catching, unforgettable work.
“For as long as I can remember I’ve always loved working with paper,” she shared with Creative Boom. “I have fond memories of being a child and building my own dens out of cardboard boxes, cutting windows to see outside and drawing decor on the exterior… quite similar to the work I do now really! I think it’s amazing how a piece of cardboard and a pen can fuel the imagination.”
Her paper sculptures are used both commercially and artistically, for a variety of different purposes ranging from advertising campaigns, set design, packaging, and window displays.
“I’m doing lots of what I love best: making paper sculptures for advertising or awareness campaigns in the events, public relations, environmental and travel and tourism sectors,” she shared. “My work usually features in print, but sometimes my sculptures are displayed in their physical form, too.”
