Strategically layering colored construction paper, she fashions paper sculptures that take on many themes including botany, kaleidoscopes, spirals and more. Through these layers, Maud Vantours' creations also have a decidedly three dimensional aesthetic, forming a vortex-like look that people will find themselves getting lost in.

The original graphics she molds often form a dream-like landscape that few will find easy to ignore. Maud Vantours writes, "Color, material and patterns have an important place in my work, like paper, which became my favorite material. I cut it to create inspired patterns in volume."
