Artist Crush: Beci Orpin

Blog home page

You will have definitely heard of our latest artist crush: Beci Orpin. A Melbourne based designer and artist, she uses colour and paper in all the ways we wish we could.

We’ve fallen in love with artists like Camilla Frances and Yulia Brodskaya for their colour and wedding invitation inspiration, but Beci Orpin has tickled our love of paper as art.

We especially love the art works by Beci Orpin that play with paper and colour. These works use paper with cut outs and gauche for a simple, beautiful effect.
