Bristol based artist and designer Helen Ward originally studied Graphic Design at the UWE in 2001, before progressing towards a career making pop-up books whilst training as a traditional bookbinder. Her entomology artworks are made using paper pieces that have been individually cut and pinned into place. The coloured pieces are made from vintage hand marbled papers which date back as far as the late 19th Century, with some works also incorporating gold and silver leaf. Alongside her artistic practice she designs stationery, gift-ware and children’s toys for major UK retailers. She regularly exhibits her Paper Entomology work internationally and in several galleries across the UK.
