Janna Willoughby-Lohr is the artist behind Papercraft Miracles. Based in Buffalo, NY Janna is a poet, an artist, and a musician, having written her first poem at the youthful age of 5. She attended Warren Wilson College in Swannanoa, NC, where she discovered the world of papermaking and bookbinding and was lucky enough to study under renowned book artist and author, Gwen Diehn. Janna created Papercraft Miracles in 2004, as a way to make a living creatively, with a dedication to the craft of paper & book arts. Papercraft Miracles is committed to being an eco-friendly business and all products are created by hand in our studio using 100% solar power and as many recycled or repurposed materials as possible. As so much of the world is becoming screen-based and digital, Janna feels a calling to preserve and promote the physicality of book and paper arts. She loves bright colors, giggling and things that are small.
