Paper cutters like this week’s IOTW Annabelle Williams would have to be the most patient, steady-handed people ever. It must take ages to create these beautiful and fragile pieces. She must have nerves of steel. I don’t think I could work with something so fragile – I am a super klutz – so it’s safer for me to stand on the sidelines and just stare in wonder.
Helen Friel would have to be one of my very favourite paper artists. I’m captivated by everything she creates. She calls herself a paper engineer and I think that description is spot on. Her work is so precise with lots of sharp lines and angles and pieces that fit together perfectly. Her work appeals to my fussy, orderly side. She creates these amazing paper replicas of things like lobsters and old gramophones and they look amazing. I wonder how long it takes to create them – from imagination through to fruition? Helen uses paper in a unique way and I think it is beautiful. Follow Helen on Instagram and while you’re at it, follow me too!
Bianca Jagoe is an illustrator and zine creator from Launceston, Tasmania. Her feed is full of colour and happy, smiling faces. I am especially fond of her studio wall which is decorated with discarded shopping lists. So awesome.

My latest guest blog for Paper Runway is up!
A little while ago I discovered the amazing work of paper artist Annie Vought. She creates the most intricate art from handwritten letters. Have a read and explore her work! I think you’ll agree that it’s amazing.
