Little Worlds Created with Tiny Arranged Paper

Artist Celan Bouillet was born as a child of a builder, she watched materials being used together to form dozens of homes. This early exposure in her life to the building process continues to be a source of inspiration in her work which is like an huge ocean of fine, little details. Her pieces that she named "Rock Garden", "Bird Watching", "Fern House" and "Texas Tapestry" are composed of hundreds of hand-cut animals, plants and people who together make colorful worlds that one would like to visit. 

Every little thing in her pieces are painted gouache on paper, hand-cut out and then placed on a background to form a complex narratives. To take a peek at all the hard work and process behind the scene you can visit her on Instagram. She also has an online store - The Bayou Botanist - where she sells the limited edition prints.
