Interesting paper finishes and colors give Lloyd work an interesting twist
The greatest inspiration for Lloyd’s work comes from nature. “The incredible tiny details, the patterns, symmetry, color, and textures. Paper is the perfect medium to express the beauty of nature, with its tactile quality and a vast range of colors and styles”, Lloyd explains.

Lloyd’s work is entirely made of paper, from the internal cardboard structures to the embellishments made of lighter, decorative papers. “A big part of the creative process is hunting out papers with interesting finishes and colors that will give my models a creative twist”, Lloyd says. The artist also takes inspiration from the design world, seeking inspiration from creative industries such as fashion, interiors, and graphic design.
