I can barely color inside the lines of a children’s coloring book, let alone cut and paste properly, so you can imagine my amazement when I stumbled upon these intricate paper artworks by Melbourne’s Emma Van Leest.

Emma Van Leest's delicate medium is no match for her mounds of creativity. She started out doing collages and then worked her way up to more three-dimensional works of art, which led her to create the masterpieces seen in the above gallery.
