Jessie Chui


My art practice focuses mainly on paper floral sculptures and photography. I began my art journey by commission work and then quickly began teaching as well. I have taught workshops at the Aurora Cultural Centre since 2017 (their Spring/Fall programs) and at The Paper Place on Queen Street West since 2016. I have also taught classes at multi-day conferences in Miami, Seattle, and a 2-day Paper Flower Intensive Workshop in Toronto. I offer online pre-recorded courses and live Zoom workshops through my educational website, Crafted to Bloom, and through my podcast community, Paper Talk Podcast. I am the author of Paper Flower Art: Create Beautifully Realistic Floral Arrangements (the paperback is called Paper Flower Art) published in 2019 by GMC Publications.

I also sell my work on my art website: I only recently started to shift my focus to exhibition/gallery work so I don’t have a CV on my website yet, although I am working on it! I have exhibited my floral sculptures at a group exhibition in Toronto in 2019 and won a juried prize (2nd), and I collaborated on a piece with an artist that is now in the permanent collection at the Cincinnati Art Museum. One of my still art photographs is exhibiting at the Why We Create show at the VAM.

Here are some images of my artwork:
