Kristine Benum Braanen is a teacher and paper artist based in Oslo, Norway. She loves to travel, and has set herself a goal to visit more countries than years that she has lived. Kristine finds inspiration in the little every day things, arcitecthure, patterns, travelling, nature and geometry. She loves finding the unintended beauty and balanse in both her work and her surroundings.

Most of Kristine´s work is cut free hand within bigger shape outlines. She never uses computer sketchers or rulers and loves the freedom and dynamics of creating freehand. 




Kristine is also one of two leaders of the Paper Artist Collective, a global community of almost 100 artists from 26 countries. She founded the collective in 2015 and runs it with fellow paper artist Samantha Quinn
