I'm a 45-year-old artist from the UK who has spent the last 5 years making my art from thousands of tiny strips of paper.

I have a keen interest in the natural world and the technique of on-edge quilling lends itself beautifully to hair, fur, and feathers, so I created an a-to-z of animals from the air, land, and sea to showcase the different textures that can be created. I try to make my paper animal pictures look as real as possible with only the on-edge technique.

I hope you enjoy my art.

This honestly looks more like a painting than a quilling project.

If you put a book in the hospitals it would be such a blessing. It would bring color to a very gray world.

You see more than most people. Some people think a tree is brown and green when they really are multicolored. Your creations make me want to draw again!
