Our next interviewee comes from Bournemouth, UK where she specializes in bringing to life the portraits of her paper sculptures. Her truly unique style reminds me of marionettes putting on a show or conveying a certain emotion in how they are captured through her work. A lot of her work represented here showcases that of familiar fairy tales we all grew up with, although her work has a very broad range. I present to you paper sculptor Sher Christopher, I hope that you enjoy her work and interview as much as we have.
