Intricate paper sculptures of butterflies and beetles By Kerilynn Wilson

Kerilynn Wilson is an Oregon-based artist fascinated by insects and uses her talent in papercraft to create intricately realistic sculptures of butterflies and beetles, fusing papercut and drawings.

I draw and paint all day, which I love, but oftentimes in the evenings, I would draw for fun too, which is very draining. I was looking for a way to be creatively fulfilled while allowing my brain to rest. Plus I save all my paper scraps from old jobs, which is what I use for my realistic sculptures of insects. And that’s how it began! My insect sculptures came about for a couple of different reasons. The primary being my love of real insects. I have always loved them and collected ones that I found already dead, but I was looking for a way to collect amazing insects without harming them. The other reason I found my way into creating these realistic artworks in my spare time is my full-time job as an illustrator.
