Paper Art Cutouts – Gang of Freyja

In the digital and screen-based world we are living we found a special world made out of paper. Paper in multicolours, shapes and textures, thicknesses and patterns, all physical and lovely. The paper art created by Juliette who is the brain and the soul of Gang of Freyja. Who is Freyja ? That was my first question I have asked Juliette when visiting her atelier in Geneva.
