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.

Stonehill School art club - Paper Angels - a piece of paper, a bit of glue and some drawing!

Here are the paper angels the art club childen made this week during the wednesday after school one hour session. I provided a template for the children to draw around and cut out and then it was over to them to decorate the angels in the way they wanted. These little winges angels were intended as some light hearted Christmas arty fun and the kids loved it. I think the expressions on their angels faces are simply gorgeous. The kind of thing only children can make. It was such a happy end to the term and a great start to the art club that will be rolled out across the the next term as a further six week project  for other children in the school to experience.
