Joyanne, from London, said: “We started working on our birds towards the end of 2009 – Julie came over from her job in Rome and we decided we had enough of our jobs. “Our thinking was if we could do anything we wanted in the world what would it be. So we wanted to see what would happen”.

“We have to do a lot of research for different projects for our commercial clients so we see a lot of different birds and techniques and think they’d look good. “It starts by artworking everything on computers to work out sizes then we scalpel the paper and sit there for days gluing everything together.”

“We use lots of different papers but usually hand printed Japanese paper – they are really vivid, beautiful papers. “Most of our birds we make by request so have a home to go to. But we really enjoy it and love the process of seeing them come together.”
