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.

Fearnhill School - photos from paper cut workshop with Arts Award students

The following posts are photos from the start of a Bronze Arts Award course that I am running at Fearnhill School. The paper cutting is a great workshop to get the students working creatively and quickly and to get the creative juices going. I was impressed with the outcomes of  these little paper cuts, the faces have a lots of expression! Some of the students arent used to using craft knives at all, so I think they have done really well.
The finished white cuts - completely fab... look at those expressions!!!
Some pupils cut into the paper after first drawing with pencil
Some students just worked straight into the paper, freely, with no pencil guides.
