The story behind the business
Meet Paper and Wood

Nature is my muse, I'm always obsessing over the tiniest bug right up to the largest bird of prey swooping overhead, and this obsession has lead me to create Paper & Wood.

whilst Illustrating Children's books and working on my own in which a little boy creates a paper bird lantern to escape an abusive household, I couldn't get the lantern to look right, so I went about making one as a prop to draw from.

After making it I was hooked, making more and more life-like artworks using mainly paper, to re-create all of those stunning details that inspire me so much.

Now I create artworks for clients worldwide, including individual commissions, installations for large spaces, museum pieces as well as shop window displays. I just love recreating nature for indoor spaces, whilst leaving the true beauty in the wild just as it is, inspiring others who get to see it.
