Jennifer Collier - paper artist

I am a paper goods freak ... if i see a stationery catalogue i get excited... sad hmmm?

Last night I had a mouth dropping moment, when I discovered Jennifer Collier's work via Pinterest...

I won't rave on too much - her amazingly fabulous work speaks for itself - i LOVE it!  Here's a quote from her website...

"My practice focuses on creating work from paper; by bonding, waxing, trapping and stitching I produce unusual paper ‘fabrics’, which are used to explore the ‘remaking’ of household objects. The papers are treated as if cloth, with the main technique employed being stitch; a contemporary twist on traditional textiles. The papers themselves serve as both the inspiration and the media for my work, with the narrative of the books and papers suggesting the forms. I tend to find items then investigate a way in which they can be reused and transformed; giving new life to things that would otherwise go unloved or be thrown away."

how wonderful ...
