She started about three years ago by making paper sculptures from crêpe paper. Initially, she made the plants, then various insects and a gecko. Then tried to make plants were not too ordinary, such as the Venus flytrap. She continued by making insects, even though the insects she made were not far from plants’ theme because they often disguised themselves as flowers or stems.

“She is trying to recreate the beauty and weirdness of nature on paper. She wants to show people that species that are often neglected and threatened due to human impacts on Earth also have extraordinary beauty and value. Some of these animals are also very rare, but decorative, so She is happy to offer cruelty-free options for people to enjoy these animals in their homes but not in real life.”
