Delightful papercraft flora and fauna

UK-based artist Lisa Lloyd has been getting lots of well-deserved notice for her intricate papercraft animals, birds, food, and other earthly delights.

Originally an animator, she moved to papercraft later. Via her site:

I find the greatest inspiration for my work comes from nature. I love the patterns, symmetry, colour, geometry and texture. I love the detail. I then try to give it a modern twist, taking inspiration from the design world- such as fashion, interiors and graphic design.

It's worth noting that a big part of being great at a craft also means being great at photography these days.

An alternative angle of a paper bee created for a series of insects inspired by fashion designers and victorian entomological illustrations. All the paper and card is cut by hand, the body texture is made from hundreds of tiny hand cut triangles. For this bee I took inspiration from Mary Karantzou’s 'resort 2018' collection such beautiful and inspiring work. #paper #paperart #papercraft #paperartistcollective #handmade #marykarantzou #fashion #luxe #designer #bumblebee #bee #entomology #insects #botanical #floraandfauna #victorianillustration #paperchase #savethebees #bee

I was asked by mental health charity 'Changes Bristol' to create some paper work for their charity auction. They felt the chameleon represents how it feels to struggle with mental health. They offer amazing peer support groups based in the Bristol area. You can make a donation here: www.changesbristol.org.uk Or if you live in Bristol you could win a signed print in the blind auction at this venue: www.whitehartwig.com/events-charitycasino.php #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealth #donate #craft #handmade #papercraft #paperartistscollective #competition #paper #chameleon #neon
