Talented Woman Sena Runa Quits Her HR Job To Create Amazing Paper Art


It can be terrifying to leave the security of a salaried job to pursue your passion, but this is precisely what Turkish artist Sena Runa did earlier this year. The former HR specialist now does paper quilling full time. Runa has the following advice for those yearning to do the same:


“Everything you create could be art, so if you believe that you make beautiful things, then you’ll see that everyone will agree. I am new in the art career (I’ve been a full-time working artist for 7 months), sometimes I feel scared and sometimes I don’t. I just believe in what I do and I know I’ll continue to create in the future.”


Quilling or paper filigree “is an art form that involves the use of strips of paper that are rolled, shaped, and glued together to create decorative designs.” While quilling was common during the Renaissance and 18th century, it now enjoying a seeing a resurgence in popularity.
