UK-based designer and illustrator Lisa Lloyd creates incredible three-dimensional paper art inspired by nature. Whether it’s a textural paper bird made from intricate layers of feather-like paper, or a colorful chameleon adorned in individually-cut paper scales, each paper sculpture is made entirely by hand. The artist reveals, “I find the greatest inspiration for my work comes from nature. I love the patterns, symmetry, color, geometry and texture.”
Inspired by both nature and the design world, Lloyd gives her paper art a modern twist by using a medley of eccentric colors and compositions. The artist even takes inspiration from contemporary works; for instance, she created a 3D paper bee influenced by Mary Katrantzou’s colorful Resort 2018 collection. Using layers of multicolored paper, the piece features delicately-cut gold wings, spindly legs, and a fuzzy body made from hundreds of tiny hand-cut triangles.
Lloyd’s impressive style has earned her an extensive paper art portfolio filled with work for clients such as Asahi, The Guardian, BBC, Disney, Hershey, Universal Music Group, Sony, and more.
