Bernadete Fiorini is a dear friend of mine from Minas Gerais, Brazil. I love her and her family very much. Here is a post that I wrote about their one-of-a-kind truck.
Bernadete’s makes these beautiful paper sculptures with a method that she teaches through workshops. Her interest in paper started when she was a little girl. Seeing her grandmother decorate her kitchen with strips of cut paper was delighting and almost magic to the little girl. At age 4 Bernadete got sick with hepatitis, it was during that period when her Mom gave her paper and a pair of scissors to keep her entertained . That time marked the beginning of a passion that have only grown over the years. Decorating with paper used to be a common practice in Brazil, specially in the poorest homes, but somehow the tradition started disappearing. Bernadete decided to do something in order to revive this tradition. A round of applause for Bernadete!

Here are some photos from Bernadete’s workshops. Notice the paper scarfs that everybody is wearing in one of the photos. So cool! Paper scarfs!
it is wonderful to know about this artist. I have never heard about her. I have been looking for some workshops. It is amazing, because she lives here in Brazil.
