About Me

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.

Take one paper witches hat and a tail - Stonehill School Art Club, Hallow e'en drawings

At Stonehill School Art Club I have been trying some new approaches to get the students to be more creative and have a little more freedom for their imagination to be lose. For Hallow e'en I simply gave them each a cut out paper witches hat and tail. It was for the children to work out what to do with them. We had a little discussion... and made some plans, and then the children got sticking and drawing. Only one child got stuck... she didn't want to do a cat, so I suggested the witch was part witch-part cat, and that went down well. Children often like absurd things....
