Meet Marthe Van Herk
A childhood love of drawing was the first sign that Marthe would follow a creative career path. She graduated from University of the Arts Utrecht as an art teacher and set out to impart her enthusiasm for drawing and the arts in her high school students.
After a few years of teaching creativity to her students, Marthe felt an irresistible urge to revisit her own creative work. She was inspired to try paper cutting by the work of a Dutch artist and went on to develop her own style of incredibly delicate and intricate pictures. Whispering Paper is the product of countless hours spent honing the drawing and cutting skills required to produce this beautiful and fragile art form.
