Born in France, Béatrice Coron lived in Egypt, Mexico, and China before moving to New York. Coron tells stories in illustrations, book arts, fine arts, and public art. She adapts her papercut designs in metal, stone, and glass. More recently, she created wearable sculptures, a 3D animated movie, and is currently working on an app. The output is numerous but the creative process starts with a story, then a papercut. Coron's papercuttings were shown at Slash at the Museum of Arts & Design and she spoke about her creative process at TED 2011. Her work has been purchased by major museum collections, such as the Metropolitan Museum, The Walker Art Center, and The Getty. Her public art can be seen in subways, airport, and sports facilities as well as in low-income housing for fences and windowguards.
