Interview with Paper Artist Sam Pierpoint

Interview with Paper Artist Sam Pierpoint - Paper Bristol

It's been a little while since we have had an interview grace Strictlypaper, and I am more than thrilled to share our interview and the incredible works of none other than Bristol based paper artist Sam Pierpoint. Her paper sculptures are astounding! The amount of detail that is carefully placed into each is truly unique. Sam also has an incredible range spanning advertising campaigns, magazine covers, editorials, installations, set design, product packaging and window displays. We have already had the opportunity to see some of this range through her Christmas campaign for Bristol. All in all her works are well thought out visual masterpieces, so I implore you to enjoy this look into Sam Pierpoint.
