Bright And Fun Paper Collages by Award-Winning Artist Laura Yager

Laura Yager is a self-taught, award-winning paper artist currently living in beautiful Boise, Idaho. She creates collages with layers and layers of hand-cut paper. The artist begins a piece with a basic sketch and cuts each tiny detail out of paper before placing them in layers.

"My colourful cut paper artwork boasts no hidden agendas or controversial messages. It may sound overly simplistic, but I like to create “happy” art. In an often fearful & anxious world, my goal is to create art that lifts up, lightens and refreshes!" via

Her whimsical artwork primarily depicts animals and birds in vivid colors that will surely brighten up any corner of your home and your mood! There are hidden words in her artwork such as "love", "happy", "heart", etc. that one can notice on inquiring closely. She loves custom orders, so if you have an idea for a piece contact her through her Facebook. The prints of her work can be found at Fine Art America.

Her work has been featured on the cover of several Boise Weekly magazines and she is an exhibiting member of the National Collage Society and the Treasure Valley Artist Alliance.
