Tina Kraus is an illustrator and paper engineer whose crafting journey began two years ago when she started making paper sculptures. The Münster, Germany-based artist first began making plants, insects and one gecko from fine crepe paper.
“When I began working with crepe paper, I started with creating traditional flowers, but I was curious what else I could do with it,” Kraus shared on Bored Panda. “So I made a not-so-traditional plant, the Venus flytrap. I had a lot of fun with the details! Next, I tried to make insects, even though the insects I chose are not too far from plants since they are disguised as flowers or sticks. After that, I challenged myself to make a gecko, and I was quite happy with how it turned out.”
Her work also includes a pop-up book, paper toys, and paper objects. The artist also does children’s book, editorial, non-fiction, pattern and stationery illustration.
