About the Artist

Hi! I’m Fiona, and I’m the brain/heart/hands behind North Star Papercraft. Late in 2013, I stumbled over the art of quilling purely by accident while reading a blog about greeting card design, and I was instantly intrigued – while I’d never considered myself much of an artist with paint or pen, I’ve always been a doodler…and here were all the swirls and curlicues that decorated the margins of my notebooks, brought to life in paper! My local craft store had a couple packs of pre-cut quilling strips (it must have been fate as I haven’t seen them since), and a passion for paper was born.

I am a proud supporter/member artist of several area arts organizations:

  • Hopkins Center for the Arts
  • Minnetonka Center for the Arts
  • Northeast Minneapolis Arts Association
  • Wyoming Area Creative Arts Community
  • Cambridge Center for the Arts
  • Westside Art Guild
