Amanda Taarup Betz’s creative process typically begins with paper that she folds, cuts and prints and with classic pencil sketches. She enjoys pushing the boundaries of paper, to achieve new experimental shapes. These early stages are often reflected in products that maintain some of the delicate expression of the initial paper drafts. The inspiration for her products often springs from the visual effects of patterns, light and shadow combined with studies of architecture and design history.’ 

Amanda Betz can engage in a wide range of projects where paper has a role to play. She is creating unique art works and using paper to develop product design. Please contact for further information on the potential of paper co-laboration or interest in paper artworks.
