I was curious to learn more about Belinda and her work so wrote to ask a few questions.
Please tell us about yourself.
I'm a motion designer by day for commercials and branding and I do all my personal work after hours. I'm constantly creating to improve and transform as an artist, it keeps me motivated and happy. I do a lot of illustration as well and it goes hand in hand with my paper sculptures. I first learned and began doing paper art in 2011 and fell completely in love with it. Doing paper art has definitely opened up many doors and I'll definitely continue to create more.
What are the steps of your design process?
Are you planning to continue with these series? And with paper sculpture in general?
I definitely plan on creating more paper sculptures. Each time I do a series of sculptures, a new idea sparks and encourages me to move on to the next series. After creating these ladies, specifically, the henna tattoo sculpture (Inked "Mira" Paper Sculpture), it gave me the idea to create a sculpture with jewelry. So I think that might be something I create in my next series. My goal is to always evolve as I'm creating my paper art and constantly create new work.
I'm sure your work is even more remarkable in person. Do you have any upcoming gallery shows?
Not at the moment. I am reaching out to different galleries to display my work. So hopefully in the near future I will be!
