Welcome to Arty Projects

Our mission is to "keep the child spirit alive."
Paper-sculpture and paper-engineered books create a magical space for discovery. Pop-up and moveable books are their own art form traceable to the Medieval world and paper folding and printing to ancient China.

After a 17 day trip to China, April 2014, I discovered cut paper art and met some of the artists in the villages. After two years of study; original works from China, reading Chinese stories and playing with handmade paper, the "light theater books" began to emerge. Handmade one up books are now my focus.
