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.

I should be doing.....

I should be starting some cuts of St. Albans Cathedral this week, but I have been distracted by having a tiny play with cyanotypes. Cyanotypes come from the earliest beginnings of photography and are made by coating paper in a solution thats light sensitive. Lay something on the top of the paper and that which is exposed to the light goes white and under the object goes an amazingly deep cyan blue. They are sometimes called sunprints. The line you get is so beautiful, clean and crisp beyond measure almost. I have a very stronge feeling that this will simply be the start of something.... an exciting journey to go on...and thats something I love,love,love doing...
