Now the new term has started, I am back into schools running paper cutting workshops. These pictures are from a session at Knights Templar School in Baldock, Hertfordshire, where I worked with a group of approx 25 students in Year 11. I showed them examples of my portfolio, explaining the difference between black line and white line cutting, and went onto show them how I layer the paper underneath to make my layered collages.

- 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.
