Anna-Wili Highfield: Paper and Nature

Anna-Wili Highfield is a Sydney based artist currently making nature-inspired sculptures from torn paper and copper pipe.

Very reminiscent of taxidermy but with a lighter feel, she delicately crafts each piece by using archival cotton paper that is then painted, torn, and sewn into these incredible pieces.
