Sarah Lake – Jara

Paper Art | 77 × 80 cm | Framed


Out of stock

Elephants’ trunks are fascinating, with their many different uses come many different movements. Sarah’s favourite is seeing it curl around itself. She focused on the curl with a peak of a tusk poking through the middle, while trying to capture the details of textured skin.



Sarah Lake is a self taught paper artist living in Kent. With a love of wildlife, most of her work is based on that theme. Every piece starts off with a photograph. The more layers there are, the more detail there will be in the final artwork. Each layer is then cut by hand using a scalpel. Sarah’s aim with each piece of her work is that it is indistinguishable at a distance from a regular picture, and only when seen up close does the viewer discover individual layers of paper.
