I always appreciate the time and patience it takes people to make paper art that’s actually eye catching. Here’s another lovely look at a prime example. Simple shapes combined with fun colour palettes and a great sense of movement make these little paper quills a very pretty sight to behold.
Istanbul born artist, Sena Runa, has been practicing her quilling since 2012 after feeling the need to get involved in a new hobby (origami wasn’t working out) and has since left her full time job as a HR specialist to continue making her alternative art for a living. Quilling, aka paper filigree, involves rolling strips of paper into coils or scrolls, followed by a whole lot of pinching, squeezing, gluing and arranging until you’ve produced the intended design, or in my case, unnecessarily tortured the last vestiges of some poor old tree.
