Diana Beltran-Herrera has exceptional talent when it comes to paper. Using an impeccable eye for colour and composition, mixed with her appreciation and love for botanical and natural history, the Columbian-raised artist has created a unique paper sculpture style.

Diana is a recent Fine Arts graduate who now lives and works in Bristol, transforming all types of paper and card into beautiful and intricate 3D sculptures for clients such as Hodder & Stoughton, Conde Nast Traveller, Florida Museum of Natural History and GF Smith amongst others. 

Growing up immersed in a diverse range of local fauna and flora and species from other parts of the world – such as migratory birds that come from North America – Diana connects to this in a peaceful way through sculpting animals and plants. 

We speak to Diana about the simple and economic nature of working with paper and how she hopes her art can change perception on animal trafficking and smuggling.
