Jessica Baldry’s Paper Artworks

WORDS Mary Garner IMAGES Jessica Baldry on Etsy

Jessica Baldry is a Bristol-based paper-cut illustrator and surface pattern designer who creates intricate works of art by hand.

Drawing inspiration from the natural world and Scandi folk art, she creates original sketches which are then cut from a single sheet of paper or from layers of textured pastel papers.

“I love the creative process and making beautiful, unique pieces of art for people to treasure,” says Jessica on her website. “I’m also a big pattern lover and often incorporate these wherever I can into my hand-made paper-cuts, as well as creating separate surface pattern design collections.”
