Depending on its function she rolls the paper on almost anything small and…

All of the clothing included in their collection is embroidered in the style of Smirnova, with the markings of accidental paint drips and…

Christopher

Paper artist Lisa Nilsson (previously) recently completed a number of new anatomical pieces using her profoundly incredible skill with quilling, a tedious process where paper is tightly wound into small rolls and then assembled into larger artworks. The natural formation of the paper coupled with Nilsson’s ability to identify the precise materials to mimic organic structures makes each artwork appear uncannily like actual cross-sections…
