Q&A With Elaine Founder Of Paper Market
1. How did the collaboration with Lulo Paper Studio come about? Why?
Many have the misconception that paper crafting is tedious and boring. The humble paper is often overlooked and highly underrated as a creative medium. Papermarket has collaborated with Lulo Paper Studio hoping to inspire people to play with paper.
2. Why a TV, Cake & Camera Kit and not something else?
We chose 3 timeless objects that have always been closely linked to important life events. We wanted the projects to be craft and gift worthy too. A retro take on these 3 objects is our ode to the good old days when life was simpler, slower and when we all had more time to play.

Q&A With Cheryl
1. Of all mediums available, why have you chosen to work with paper?
I love the freedom it gives me to construct everything I want. It's such as simple yet versatile medium, that you can easily manipulate by folding or cutting. Whatever is in my head can almost always be created with paper and I just love that I can express so purely with it.
2. For people who have been inspired by your artistry, would you share your source of inspiration?
I'm inspired by everything and anything! From things that I can see and touch to the way I'm feeling at the moment. Whatever matters or strikes a chord in me is always the best subject matter to use for my art as I find it has the most emotional currency.
