art & illustration : paper butterflies by Elouise Hall

These delicate collaged artworks by London based artist Eloise Hall. I stumbled across this beautiful 'Butterfly Garden' piece when I was catching up with a few things around Facebook yesterday. I followed a couple of links, as you do, and found myself with my nose pressed up against her virtual shop window at Not on the Highstreet.

I am completely smitten with the simplicity of these collages and Eloise's understated use of colour. It makes these tiny wee birds and butterflies (and Koi Carp!) look like jewels in a sea of white and I love that when you look closer you see the pretty patterns of the origami papers she uses.

But what really makes these pieces for me is knowing that each and every paper motif has been hand cut and collaged, then finished with hand drawn details. I know that all us handmade artists (and lovers of handmade, of course!) will be able to appreciate the depth of beauty this gives a piece of artwork like this... :)
