Lis Costa, born in Goiânia, Brazil in 1961.
I have always been keen on manual labour and creative works since I was little. Because of this I started the Plastic Arts class at Federal University of Goiás (UFG) and then I got into Architecture at UCG University the following year, where I graduated in 1985.
For several years I worked as an architect and interior designer.
Afterwards, in 1991, I moved to Bologna, Italy, and started working in the field of trade.
I went back into manual labour in recent years and I was involved in cultural associations that allowed me to focus on my creativity and to show my first pieces.
My journey into paper carving began because of a desire to recreate different designs by exploring both organic and abstract shapes, playing with lights and shades created by paper cuts, to achieve a light and delicate result.
