Paris-based paper artist Aline Houdé-Diebolt relies on contrast and texture to create whimsical worlds of paper that are a joy to behold. Trained originally as a textile designer, her love of shapes, materials, and colors, manifests in each of her paper designs.
“Paper is a really fascinating material,” she told Strictly Paper. “There are 1000 ways to use it, I do not really have any advice to give, everyone has to use it in their own way. The most important thing is to have fun!”
And boy is she having fun. Since graduating from the École Supérieure d’Arts Appliqués Duperré in 2007, she works as a freelance paper designer and set designer around the world.
Her collaborations include showcases, events, photoshoots, and advertising shoots for major brands. She also designs content for social networks as well as tailor-made works for individuals and personal pieces. “I love my job because I do a lot of different things,” she said. “I also love to explore new techniques, to overcome challenges, to go out of my comfort zone and update my skills.”
