Ideas for Using Shredded Newspaper

Ideas For Shredding Newspaper   Shredded newspapers is my main sculpturing material for my eco- friendly art. I use shredded newspaper as a base for my paper pulp. I would rather use newspaper than any other paper because it is sustainable and it has a stone-like color to it. I encourage people from all walks […]

Bianca Severijns, a Paper Artist

Bianca’s artwork exudes a unique delicacy I don’t see often. She uses paper as her primary medium and patiently shreds it before painting each strip with layers of acrylic. She has created works of art from hanging art to decorative art vessels Each paper strip she shreds and paints represents a shape and size. It also […]

Ana Meneses: Stretching the Imagination

  I first discovered Ana Meneses’ work through another fellow artist and was blown away by her artwork.

Greda Ritzmann: Cut, Folded, Reconstructed

Paper artist Greda Ritzmann cuts, folds and reshapes paper to visually form the image she wants to create. I think the end product is eye-popping and flawless but she says the process is also “labor intensive and intellectually demanding.” To start, the Swiss-born artist finds the right amount of newspapers and magazines that are suitable […]

Helyne Jennings: Mini details, mini canvases

  As an artist, I believe that art should be shared. Paper is the material I work with and I like to keep learning and discovering new ways to manipulate it. I allow myself to peruse the artwork of others and share it with you. The paper jewelry of Helyne Jennings from the UK, who […]

Another Tsarouxi- The Spiral

“Spiral Tsarouxi”   “Spiral Tsarouxi” is a welcomed addition to another work of mine, “A Modern Tsarouxi.” Like its counterpart, “Spiral Tsarouxi” is hand painted with decorative symbols and lines from acrylic paints but with the addition of recycled rice paper to give it a more wrinkled look. I wanted to add texture in order […]
