Ann Martin with quilling supplies


I'm Ann Martin, a quilling enthusiast who has been exploring the worlds of creative paper art and paper craft here at All Things Paper since 2009. Topics range from the latest on the craft scene - stylish paper-related DIYs, trends, and book reviews - to interviews with established paper artists and emerging artisans with big ideas. 

A former hospital nurse, I live on the east coast of the United States in Delaware where I design paper projects for books and magazines. I especially enjoy introducing the surprising concept of rolled paper art to those who have never seen or heard of quilling.


My work has been exhibited in a solo show, The Spirit Is Quilling, at the Brandywine River Museum of Art in Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania, and in a group show, Pulp Culture: Paper Is the Medium at Morris Museum in Morristown, New Jersey.

My most recent book, The Art of Quilling Paper Jewelry is available worldwide via Amazon or your local bookstore and library. If your library doesn't have it, ask if it can be ordered; many libraries welcome requests. 


Previous books, All Things Paper: 20 Unique Projects from Leading Paper Crafters, Artists, and Designers and Creative Paper Quilling: Wall Art, Jewelry, Cards & More, are available online and in stores and libraries. All three titles can be ordered via your local bookseller.


Projects are also included in The Art of Papercraft, Bibliocraft, 1000 Handmade Greetings, as well as U.S., British, Australian, and German paper craft magazines.

I send out a newsletter every few weeks. If you would like to be introduced to a variety of intriguing paper art and paper crafts, sign up for it here. Meet me via this video interview I did with The Quilling Quarter in January 2021.
