Paper flower artist Soo Wai Yan, 31, loves how paper can be crafted and transformed into beautiful flowers with just a few cuts, folds, and rolls. The crafter from Petaling Jaya is fascinated by the versatility of paper and how it can be used to construct realistic blooms and unique arrangements that can last for years.

“The endless possibilities of paper is what inspired me to become a paper artist. I love to manipulate paper in fantastically varied ways. The power of paper as a medium is that it can be constructed into literally anything by skillful hands,” says Soo in an email interview.
