Janna Willoughby-Lohr

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. She is thrilled that her creations have become a part of so many special moments, from weddings, to graduations, to births. 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.
