Amelia Kieras is a Pittsburgh based illustrator, paper artist, and bookworm. She uses her love of fairy tales, monsters, and exploring to bring stories to life inside pop up cards, picture books, and other paper creations. To create her illustrations, Amelia starts with a sketch, scans it, and then builds the final illustration from a collage of original photography and digital painting techniques.She prints, cuts, and assembles almost all of the final products in her home studio, using archival pigment-based giclee printing and heavyweight matte papers.
