Art Inspiration of the Month – Su Blackwell

Now that I’ve been working with cut paper as an art medium for the last five months or so, I feel an even bigger desire to learn more and keep improving. I’ve been looking at more experienced cut paper artists for inspiration so that I can see what’s possible to make with paper art.

One artist whose work I keep going back to is Su Blackwell’s. She’s an absolutely amazing paper artist who transforms books and paper into works of art. Works of art that awaken our inner child and make us imagine worlds that exist only in our wildest fantasies.

                                            and dark.

Weekly Paper Art Update 1

After completing the April Art Challenge, I realized how much I enjoy participating in different challenges and contests.

The best part of participating is the large amount of growth I see in my work in just a matter of weeks. By forcing myself to create more in a shorter time span, I am faced with lots of roadblocks that I have to tackle in order to complete the challenges. These roadblocks ultimately lead me to find solutions to problems I had previously avoided and that leads to growth and a greater understanding of what I can achieve with paper art.

Below are some challenges that I am participating in for the month of May.

The story

After having her 15 minutes of fame, Amelia was over the moon. She was finally where she belonged. She had always known she was a star and better than everyone else.

But, as it happens, people soon lost interest. It didn’t help that she was talentless and rude.

Voodoo Witch Gets Revenge Light Box

Available for Purchase HERE.

The story

Growing up, Ofelia was always reminded of just how different she was. It wasn’t her fault that her eyes were different colors, that she had a slightly green tint to her skin, or that her head was too big for her body.
She learned, at an early age, to isolate herself and rely on art as her friend and companion.

Life was as good as it could get for Ofelia, but that all changed. When children started disappearing in her village, everyone automatically assumed it was her. People claimed they had seen little kids running around her home. Little did they know that they were paper people she had created so that she wouldn’t be so lonely.

Sister Sister Light Box

Available for Purchase HERE.

The story

Valentina and Emilia were not your ordinary 7-year-old twins. They were quite different.

It wasn’t because they were conjoined, but rather because they thought everyone else should be.

It started off innocently enough, with them tearing apart their dolls and giving them extra heads, just like them.

But that got boring fast.
