damuse is back with ana wili highfield’s torn paper sculptures

I’m back and ready for the Fall season with much more to share, including new things on the horizon for Daily Art Muse, so keep a close watch on this page. This morning’s artist shows us that when we are driven to make, our creativity transforms even the most simple material.

One day when Ana-Wili Highfield was pregnant, she was struck with the urge to create something for her unborn daughter. A piece of cotton paper was nearby which she colored, tore into pieces, and fashioned into a sweet Fairy Wren. That was just the beginning for the Sydney based artist, who graduated from art school and worked as a scenic artist for Opera Australia before striking a chord with her paper sculptures. The video clip below is a charming glimpse of the artist in her studio. More images and a great article here.
