An artist cuts animals and flora on sheets of paper

British artist Pippa Dyrlaga only needs a precision knife and paper to start creating. With just a few tools, she is able to masterfully cut animals large and small from simple sheets of paper, from striped tigers to scaly chameleons to fluffy squirrels.

While Dyrlaga’s precision paper cuts can make practicing easy, she has been meticulously perfecting her craft for over 10 years. A work of art can take several hours, as the artist must carefully cut and carve all the little holes you see in the piece. Only in this way is she able to produce the fascinating textures that decorate the forms of these animal and vegetable figures.

In addition to hand-cutting all of these elaborate works of art, Dyrlaga also adds colorful touches to his designs, such as painting the feathers of a bird and the fur patterns of an anteater. This enhances the delicate intricacy of the many tiny marks on the paper.

You can buy original artwork through Dyrlaga’s website and keep up to date with the artist’s latest projects by following her on Instagram.
