Hattie Newman

Hattie Newman is a set designer and paper artist working from her studio in East London. She builds and directs animations and set designs using handmade cut paper elements.  Many of her designs are found in advertisements, magazines, physical spaces and books. In an article on Lavva she says this about the limitations of her art:

“The paper projects don’t keep very well. After a few months the glue unsticks and it will all just unfold; if you have it out in sunlight the color will fade, and it’s hard to clean. I don’t keep very much – I instead keep it alive through the photos. I used to be sad about that because I would get attached and sentimental about everything I made. Now, if I make something really special, I’ll keep it in a bell jar.”

More of her work can be found on her website, Behance and Instagram.
