Bringing winged creatures to life through methodically crafted paper sculptures, Artist Lisa Lloyd create a new era for arts and crafts. Scoring, folding, and fringing are her major skills that blend with her beautiful mind. Lisa creates birds and butterflies that are arresting in their realism. And in the focus to detail, it is splendid. Lloyd uses tiny pieces of scalloped paper to create the feathers and wings. And this is simply 4,000 paper pieces on a single model.
In advance sculpting winged figures, what the artist Lloyd doing is identify how they act in reality. “I research the subjects by studying YouTube videos of them in motion as well as static images from as many angles as possible,” she tells
And furtherly she was saying, “I study the details but I also like to watch how they move, their head movements, and mannerisms to try to capture their personality
Furthermore, she used to make visits to the local natural history museum, the “Booth Museum”, in Hove, which is near to her place.
“I get to go behind the scenes to study them up close, which is especially helpful for exotic animals which are less familiar”.
When she completed the research, she starts to build her work a reality. Lloyd builds these birds and butterflies from the outside in. This is how she explains,
“I create the internal skeleton in card and paper, sculpting the structure to tilt the head to capture the personality”.
“The models are 100% paper, apart from the wire feet so they can grip their perch and Fimo clay eyes coated in high gloss varnish”.
