Boo Paterson is a papercutting illustrator and fine artist whose strong conceptual work led to her being shortlisted in the World Illustration Awards 2016 and 2018.
She was commissioned by publishers Pavilion to create a papercutting book, which was released world-wide on the Batsford imprint in summer 2017.
Paterson fulfilled this demanding brief in just three months; completing all concepts, designs, text and illustrations for the book in that time.
She also works to tight deadlines with private commissions – often creating beautiful and complex paper sculptures at very short notice.
Paterson began in fine art, and her work has been exhibited at several top galleries, including the Royal Scottish Academy of Art, as well as featuring extensively in media world-wide, such as the BBC, The Guardian, and The Week.
She is now seeking commissions with advertising, publishing and editorial clients.
