9 inspiring paper artists to follow on Instagram

As you might be aware by now, I LOVE working with paper. I love everything about it. I love that paper is not supposed to make shapes. It’s flat and you’re only supposed to write on it. Right?!

NOPE! There are some amazingly inspiring paper artists who break the 2D mold and make magic out of nothing. Here’s a round up of some of my favorite paper artists to follow on Instagram.

Happy weekend!

Kate Zaremba Company

Kathryn Zaremba of Kate Zaremba Company is a talent! I was lucky enough to get to know her while she worked for Jonathan Adler as his personal assistant and I was an intern. We both attended the same graduate school too. Fun fact: she was Annie on Broadway as a wee lass and was Michelle Tanner’s friend on Full House. Ha! She uses her paper cutting skills to influence her gorgeous wallpaper and illustrations.
