Tiffany Budzisz

Tiffany's whimsical, yet elegant, paper sculptures are influenced by her experience working as a graphic designer. She is also inspired by the graceful, flowing lines of the Art Nouveau movement, and the simple geometric styles of Art Deco. Flora and fauna (real or imagined), nature, and symbolism are subjects she finds fascinating and often explores in her work. Tiffany creates her paper sculptures by cutting intricate shapes from archival paper with an X-Acto knife. She curves the individual cut shapes with a dowel, then glues the pieces together between layers of foam core to create dimensional works of art. While this may seem tedious to some, the process of cutting, shaping, and creating are moments of pure happiness for her.
