a bird in the hand…

Paper artist :: Cheong-ah Hwang.

Her work is beautiful and intricate, the hummingbirds look so real and fragile

as if they could wake up and fly away.

Self-taught artist Cheong-ah Hwang creates beautiful and intricate works of art that are made entirely out of paper. When she was a child, her parents owned a print store and she grew up with paper all around her. And that’s how she got her start in paper sculpture early – by making paper toys to amuse herself.

Amazing Paper Artworks by Cheong-ah Hwang

Cheong-ah Hwang is a Columbus, Ohio-based self taught paper artist originally from Korea. In order to gain exposure and fund a project to make low-cost prints of her Little Red Riding Hood layered paper sculpture, she joined Kickstarter. She ended up raising $570 which far exceeded her goal of $250!

If you like her work, you may buy some of these at her store at Etsy or simply go check out more of her pieces at her portfolio .
