favorite artists...


loving these beautiful sewn paper sculptures by artist anna-wili highfield. from her bio:

"Anna-Wili Highfield is a Sydney based artist currently making sculptures of animals from torn paper and from copper pipe. The paper sculptures are created from archival cotton paper, that is painted, then torn and sewn together, to create the figure of an animal. The copper pipe is bent and manipulated to create sculptural forms reminiscent of line drawings."











i have finished up my office and i am really ready to get back to work. i have set up a new challenge for myself... which i will start to share with you next week. i think it will be a great way to motivate me to do some new work, and will hopefully be interesting to you also!
