Paper Birds

UK-based artist Bronia Sawyer colors, folds and rolls the pages of books to create these unique, beautiful birds. “I like to take something like a book and turn it into something visually pleasing,” says Sawyer. “I like the fact that books are flat and square. By cutting and folding them, you can create and organize random shapes. I also like to add colors, but mainly for the way it looks in photographs.

“I have been creative all my life, I love art. It has been the one thing that has stayed stable when I am happy or sad. It has always been there just waiting silently. I would say that I'm obsessed. I rarely do the same thing twice. Life's too short and I have too many ideas for repetition.”
