Magical paper fairy of the art work, Essimar is the work of Esther Ramirez. I’ve been a fan of Esther’s work for years, marveling at the sophisticated design and intricate details of each of her pieces. It’s always inspiring to find an artist who’s work is accessible, while also being totally committed to the process of handmade. A piece that’s hand cut and hand pasted one tiny scrap of paper at a time– it doesn’t get much more handmade than that.
Whether printmaking, collage, fantastical creatures or tiny three- dimensional paper sculptures, Esther’s work is always a wonder.
