About Me

My photo
Arlesey, Bedfordshire, United Kingdom
I am a cut paper artist and I live in Arlesey, Bedfordshire. I am originally from Wiltshire, from a very long village called Winterslow, just outside Salisbury. I make my work by drawing into a black piece of paper and then layering colours from behind which I cut into again. This makes very delicate and intricate paper pieces that are inspired by my love of the landscape and the natural world about me.

Knights Templar School, Baldock - Festival Week workshop 2009 Yrs 8 - 11

These paper cuts were from a two hour Festival Week workshop at Knights Templar School, Baldock in 2009 - pupils were mainly Year 8 rising to Year 11's. The pupils were free to cut the paper I supplied in the way they wanted. Many fixed on making faces and densely patterned ones... but the blue boat cut at the bottom was unusual. It takes a lot of nerve and sophistication to make a cut like this especially for a child. Most children want to add more and more detail but this piece is wholly about the very simplest of paper cut away.
