Sheffield, UK-based freelance paper artist Sarah Louise Matthews creates absolutely stunning sculptures of animals, plants, and objects entirely out of paper.
I am a design-enthusiast, sucker for good packaging design and self-proclaimed perfectionist, who loves to explore, wear stripes and nest when not in the studio.
‘Paper Engineer’ would have been my dream job as a child, had I known of its existence. Well, it would have been a close second after professional Ballerina anyway. I have been a maker for as long as I can remember, from my earliest memories folding origami penguins and cutting paper doll chains, to graduating from my Textile Surface Design Degree in 2011 with a graduate collection of paper jewellery, to now spending my days buried under paper in my studio in Nottingham, cutting, folding, gluing and interlocking to create innovative and playful paper designs.Sarah Louise Matthews
