Cecilia Levy

Paper sculptor

Formerly a graphic designer and bookbinder, Cecilia Levy now works full-time as an independent artist, creating sculptural objects in paper using old book pages, wheat starch paste and the papier mâché technique. Her work is exhibited internationally and is included in private and permanent collections, including the Swedish National Museum. In 2017 her public art commission was installed in the main entrance of Stockholm’s New Karolinska University Hospital: 20 plinths holding over 25 unique paper sculptures. She lives in Sigtuna, works in her studio in Uppsala and is a member of Konsthantverkarna in Stockholm, where her work is sold.


Cecilia Levy specialises in papier mâché and has mastered a vast range of paper-working techniques. As a former graphic designer and bookbinder, Cecilia is skilled in many techniques used in these two areas, often incorporating aspects of them into her work.
