Paper could be as strong as a rock or as delicate as a flower, it can be folded and cut in infinite ways, it can be found in thousands of colors and textures, it can be pasted and painted, paper can transform into anything you can imagine.
In almost four years of dedicating my time to paper art I haven't found a thing that can’t be expressed through paper. I'm always amazed with the transformation of plain sheets into all kinds of shapes and figures. It’s incredible how a piece of paper can share a whole story without writing a word on it.
I'm a freelancer that creates complete handmade concepts for any type of event or space. From conceptualization and design, to execution and installation.
Florencia Alba Paper design is a small business born in May 2016 in Aguascalientes, Mexico, it started almost like a hobby and it quickly transformed, almost by accident, into my full time job and my passion. In 2019 I moved to Toronto, Canada, where I've continued my work.
I discovered all the possibilities and wide range of things that can be created just using paper. And in almost four years of experience and two different countries, I've worked with a big range of clients: nightclubs, music festivals, malls, many different kinds of shops, photographers, event planners, cosmetic brands, tech companies and a few others.
My name is Florencia Alba, I'm a woman that dreams big and commits with her goals, willing to learn, experiment and live. I'm a dedicated and passionate designer and engineer, that challenges herself constantly, personally and professionally. I take every opportunity I have to grow and make something different.
I was born in Mexico in a city right in the center of the country called Aguascalientes. Something I love about my country it's the very vibrant and colorful culture that we have. Something that I try to embody and bring into my designs.
Since I was I little girl I've enjoyed everything that has to do with arts and crafts, I wanted to be a fashion designer, but when I grew up I decided to study Innovation and Design Engineering at Universidad Panamericana, and I hold a specialty degree in Product Engineering.
In May 2019 I decided to bring a new challenge into my life and moved to Toronto with my now fiancé and have continued working on my business.
