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.
Adult and Student one day workshop - Stratton Upper School Arts Weekend
In February this year I ran a one day adult/student paper cutting workshop at Stratton Upper School in Biggleswade, Beds. The workshop was part of a two day arts weekend that current students attended as well as members of the public from the surrounding areas. Some students came with family members to learn together. I did an extended talk through my work and processes and the rest of the workshop was spent teaching the techniques I use and applying them to individual pieces so that by the end of the day students and adults had a wadge of art to take home with them. Here was some beautiful art made on the day. I stupidly took pictures upside down! but you will get a taster of the work that was created.
