In January 2015, Turkish artist Sena Ruda bravely quit her job as a Human Resources specialist and started a business around her beautiful and elaborately quilled paper designs. So far Ruda has been quite successful, creating gorgeous pieces that are used for weddings, ad sponsorships and even for the cover of a self-help book. Ruda is also selling select designs through her Etsy shop.
She was born in Istanbul, Turkey in 1983. After graduating with a BA degree from Marmara University in Istanbul in 2008, she worked as a HR specialist until January 2015 when she left her job and started designing artworks using paper quilling technique as a full time job.
