While Rebecca Coles' beautiful paper butterflies would be enough to reel in an appreciative audience, she has taken them a step further by arranging them into large scale art installations that often take up whole walls of the galleries they are placed in. Mainly working within a cyclical pattern, which is appropriate considering the nature influence each piece has, Rebecca Coles is a detailed paper artist.

Based in the United Kingdom, Rebecca Coles' creations stems from a fascination "with the process by which three-dimensional decorative forms materialise out of flat sheets of paper," according to her website. Using recycled paper, she hones in on specific colors, words and imagery to heighten the meaning of each butterfly and, ultimately, the entire sculpture. Rebecca Coles says, “My aim is to transform an every day object into a piece of work that invites the viewer to see beyond its original source.”
