Hi, I’m Raya Sader, a Lebanese/Venezuelan currently living in Barcelona and I hand cut and shape paper to bring it to life.

This is the series of paper leaves. I hand draw rough outlines of the leaves I want to create, hand cut them and freehand the details with my trusty scalpel and then carefully hand shape and mould them to recreate their texture, most of them are large scale tropical leaves in an attempt to express their natural breathtaking beauty through paper art.
