Papercut’s from Petra Borner

My love of paper art is growing, especially when I look at Petra Borner’s portfolio of work.  Petra is an illustrator from Sweden who now lives in London.

Petra grew up in a family of doctors and secured her first commission (illustrating medical journals) through her surgeon mother, which might go some way to explaining why her work is so reminiscent of botanical diagrams in biology textbooks.

Petra’s principle subject is the flora and fauna of the natural world, which she creates using paper cut techniques so intricate and detailed that they scarcely look like they could be real.

Her client list includes Louis Vuitton, Ikea, Vogue and Jamie Oliver to name a few.  For more info, follow the link http://www.hugoandmarie.com/artists/petra-borner
