Gail Armstrong's Photo - International Paper Sculpture illustrator. London

Gail Armstrong has been creating paper sculptures for over 25 years and her enthusiasm for the medium hasn’t waned one snip. She still wants every image she creates to be better than the last, and she has cut, embossed, folded and glued her way to a cabinet full of creative industry awards. Her clients simply love her unique ability to turn a flat sheet of paper into an amazing work of art.
From galleries full of contemporary artworks through to Paperchase outlets selling her favourite medium, Gail takes inspiration from the world around her, then applies her imagination to craft characters, vehicles, buildings, products, typography and entire dioramas – either in full colour or plain white. She has a BA and Post Graduate Diploma in Graphic Design and Illustration at Glasgow School of Art.

Approach

Each construction begins with extensive planning as Gail explores the composition and how to sculpt the image three-dimensionally. Then she meticulously constructs the set, poring over the textures, colours and patterns, before it is professionally photographed.

Style

Paper may seem flat to most of us, but Gail sees in it the potential to create new worlds with their own look and feel. Simple sheets are manipulated and transformed into 3D sculptures, imbued with beauty using a gamut of stocks, textures and colours.
