Ellen Giggenbach

October 8, 2010

Originally from Bavaria, Germany, Ellen Giggenbach now resides in windy Wellington,

New Zealand where she creates amazing designs from cut out painted papers.

Inspired by folk art, mid century design, ceramics and fabrics. In particular,

1950’s childrens’ books. Her home (featured in her blog link above)

is decorated with colourful examples of all.

She is drawn to the work of Orla Keily and Helen Dardik

(whom I blogged about here ) and now has her own collection of cushions and bags

that she is selling on her website here.

There’s more info on Ellen in an interview by Boxbird here. If you’re interested in that personal touch,

she also takes commissions and you can contact her  at
