Diana Beltran Herrera paper aviary comprises hundreds of sculptural birds, flowers, plants and insects.

Diana Beltran Herrera, is a Colombian designer and artist who has been working over the past years with paper as the primary medium in the production of her work.

Herrera has exhibited in her country as well as participating in solo and group shows in Europe, Asia and USA. Her recent commissions includes a piece for the Festival of ideas (program developed by Bristol City Council), and her first solo show in Asia (Jakarta, Indonesia) supported by the Embassy of Colombia in Indonesia and Cancilleria de Colombia en el Exterior.

Artistic work with paper is often meticulous and exact, requiring a healthy dose of patience, a knowledge of materials, and a steady hand. Herrera’s handiwork has seen the making of more than 100 construction paper and cardboard birds, fish, flower, plants and insects. Her colorful collection of birds is sculpted with a precise hyper-realism that matches the personalities and peculiarities of species from the great Hornbill to the European goldfinch.

The birds begin with a structural framework, also made from paper. Interwoven cardboard sheets form a sturdy foundation for the layers Herrera then applies. Each exterior sheet is carefully cut in tiny, oblong shapes that resemble individually plucked feathers. a fringe-like texture sliced into each edge mimics the wispy texture of actual plumage. The bird takes shape as Herrera meticulously attaches each colored quill, finally forming both large and small scale species that are nearly identical to their living, physical counterpart.

Seattle Artist Creates Beautiful Collages with Flowers and Plants

Using a vivid imagination and a sharp eye for gathering plants, Bridget Beth Collins turns relics of nature into beautifully lush collages that form delightfully whimsical scenes.

The Pacific Northwest artist forages materials for her pictures from the area surrounding her Seattle home and arranges the pieces into intricate shapes that create a distinctive sense of depth. With her touch, flower petals can transform into regally feathered birds, berries can become sea creatures, and leaves can turn into human faces.

Collins’ love of nature was fostered at a young age, when she traipsed through magnificent mountain meadows during backpacking trips and let her imagination run free in her backyard every afternoon. She pretended she was a fairy and gathered plants to press in books at home. Now, as an adult, Collins continues to be inspired by nature. She says ideas for new pictures constantly jump out at her as she goes about her day. “I go for a walk in my neighborhood or bring a bouquet home from the market and I see a whale’s tail in a shamrock leaf, or a snake’s scales in the sedum,” she says.
