About Me

My photo
I am a cut paper artist and I live in Arlesey, Bedfordshire. I'm originally from a small village outside Salisbury - Winterslow - in Wiltshire. I use a scalpel (and scissors too) to cut into single sheets of paper that I then layer from behind to create bold and striking images of buildings and places, expressing my love of the English landscape and the natural world about me.

Playing with shadows on on a sunny Tuesday.

I have been playing again with shadow making while cutting a new piece. Its a lovely sunny morning here and the light is sharp and clean. Gorgeous.

One of the pieces in the photos are of a dream I had of a huge ship and another of the pictures is the cut I am making now based on a line from Algernon Charles Swinbourne - "I shall go down to the great sea mother, the mother and lover of men, the sea" - from the poem "The Triumph of Time".
