Isabel Fawn creates three dimensional, decorative boxes:
“Inspired by Fabergé Eggs, I make each box from recycled offcuts of mounting board, paper and glue. I layer images from various sources, mainly magazines including fashion, art, home décor, and National Geographics. The inside is as important as the outside and no two boxes are the same.” – Isabela Fawn
