Jo Lynn Alcorn's Paper Art
Bio
A graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design,
I first worked in magazines in New York City,
as an art director and art buyer.
In the early 90's, I began doing dimensional illustration,
an outgrowth of a love of collage and paper.
My work has found many applications,
from children's wallpaper designs to floral murals
in a department store in Beijing.

I have been fortunate to find interesting work abroad,
especially in China and Japan where there seems
almost to be a cultural affinity for paper arts.
I am represented in Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Singapore
by Taiko & Associates, in France by LT2, and in New York
by Farimah Milani & Associates.

In 2009 I completed a large staircase mural
in the Kips Bay Showhouse in New York City,
in collaboration with Amy Lau of Amy Lau Design
and Laura Romanoff of Maya Romanoff Wallpapers.

As a personal project, I have been working on a collection
of fantastical butterflies and insects,
made of paper, naturally.
