UNESCO Youth Forum

I was honoured to work on this project for the UNESCO‘s 10th Youth Forum that is taking place 25-26th October this year in Paris. This year’s title is ‘Rethinking #Youth #Engagement with UNESCO’
I was asked to create an image that symbolised all the amazing people working together to make the world a better place.
I created a papercut design with a symmetrical world featuring different colours for each region.

The Kiss

We all have this particular love story in our lives that changed us, the one that hurt, the one that marked us.
This piece is about that moment when you are still in love and everything is fantastic, but in the end the bastard breaks your heart and it hurts a lot.
This piece represents the expectation, the moment where you don’t know yet that it’s coming, the knife is coming.

Inspired in Marc Chagall painting “Birthday”. Paper, 50 x 23 cm, framed.

Every night I have a discussion with my husband -“You have too many clothes”, – “actually no, I need more space!”. So I thought why not recreate my wardrobe? It is full of stuff…. can you see the cat?
It is made with ivory and brown textured paper.
It has a wooden base. Height: 32 cm.

I made a very similar piece for the book “Beautiful Paper Cutting: Over 30 Creative Projects for Cards, Gifts, Decor, and Jewelry” published by Lark Crafts.
