Jennifer Tran is a flowersmith, photographer, author, and the founder of Papetal™. Since graduating from the University of New South Wales, Australia, with a Bachelor of Art Education and a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Hons), Jennifer’s work has been featured in the National Sculpture Magazine of China, Martha Stewart Living (USA) and The Design Files (Australia). In early 2016, she was recommended by blog Design*Sponge as one of the top paper flower artists to follow. Jennifer’s workshops at Sydney’s Books Kinokuniya and the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia have been exceptionally well received. She is a frequent contributor to Etsy Australia, and her online tutorials appear across multiple platforms. Jennifer’s expansive set of both skill and creativity reflects in her diverse collection of work: from couture headdresses, jewellery and tableware, to elaborate window displays and commercial set designs.

“With just some paper and mundane tools, Jennifer is able to create intensely beautiful works of art.” Richard Aloisio, Former Art Director, The New York Times.
