Paper artist Amy Genser's new nature-inspired art mimics reefs, beehives, and barnacles

Although the majority of her works are similar in nature, each piece has its own personality—just like the real coral reefs living beneath the waves. The Connecticut-based artist spends hours and hours on each time-consuming paper artwork , as each individual component is cut and rolled by hand from mulberry paper.

Genser also draws inspiration from beehives, and the organic forms of plants, rock formations, barnacles, and seaweed.
