Amy Eisenfeld Genser crafted these (and many more) coral reef landscapes using rolled up pieces of paper and acrylic paint. Where does she get her inspiration? According to her website:

The sources of my work are textures, patterns, and grids. I look for forms that can be repeated to create a pattern when they are joined. My work tries to capture the essence of an experience or an image I have seen. I often look to the natural world for inspiration. I am fascinated by the flow of water, the organization of beehives, and the organic irregularity of plants, flowers, rock formations, barnacles, moss, and seaweed. Aerial views of our landscape can also be compelling; it is interesting how the organization of our landscape becomes quilt-like when viewed from above.

    I really like the idea of using quilling to create the texture of coral, I need to figure out a way to transfer this...
