My name’s Finlay, and I make paper and prop art. I’m colorblind so drawing with color is difficult–paper is easier for me to see and conceptualize. I graduated from the University of Oregon in 2016 with honors and majored in Comparative Literature with minors in Latin, Medieval Studies, and Creative Writing.


How did you first get involved with paper arts?

I got started mainly to see if I could make paper art that I enjoyed. Turns out that it’s incredibly soothing and easier for me to see than other traditional mediums. I didn’t have any instruction, I just did it.

Tell me more about your crafting process.

All my paper projects are entirely made out of cardstock and glue. That’s it. All details are hand cut by me, not with tools. It takes hours, sometimes days to make a piece. I like making smaller pieces rather than large ones, but I’ve made all kinds of projects.
