About / Contact

I'm Cecelia Louie, a graphic designer and paper crafter. Paper Zen is the calming serenity I feel when surrounded by a pile of paper scraps.

My love of paper first started in grade 2, when I folded my first origami balloon. I enjoy giving quilling a modern twist and designing paper projects. I first started this blog to record work I gave away, and am thrilled to know that it's been inspiring to others.

My book, Pretty Quilled Cards, was published by Lark Crafts, March 2014 and has been translated into French and Chinese. My second book, Quilling Creations: Flora & Fauna: Craft 10 Charming Paper Art Vignettes, was published by becker&mayer!, October 2017.

I've also contributed to All Things Paper, 2015 and The New Encyclopedia of Origami and Papercraft Techniques, 2011.

I am instructor on Craftsy, and teach how to make Quilled & Sculpted Cards.

I love hearing what other paper crafters are working on, so please email me at paperzeninfo (at) gmail.com
