Fruit in Paper

I was born in Shanghai, spent my childhood in Canada, and currently tend a garden full of paper botanicals in California. My work often combines different weights and colours of crepe paper over a wire, cotton or papier-mâché frame to build the beautiful flora and fruit that you see. Typically each item takes 15-20+ hours of work to complete in order to capture the details you would see in the natural world combined with a touch of imagination from my dreams. My goal is to capture the beauty of life in paper and to encourage my viewer to stop and smell the roses.
