Su Blackwell’s wonderful paper art takes you inside the realm of fairytales and stories, creating magical scenes. Using storytelling as inspiration, the artist arranges her paper art scenes on the pages of books. Her pieces are tactile and intricate, with many complex designs coming together to build each story. The scenes are also brought to life with light, having a glow behind the windows of houses and the flash of a lighthouse, making them appear even more magical.
