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.

New Cambridge cuts for Byard Art

I was reading today on a vid on Youtube, that of the 200,000,000 blogs about the world, many are posted on daily. Hmmmnnnn... I dont seem to be keeping up with the Jones'!! Somehow I dont sems to grab enough time to get some posts done - I am too busy juggling different heads I reckon, so that the days roll on by. Mind you just lately I have been working like a mad thing - getting new St. Alban's cuts done and the paper poems for Letchworth Art Centre and now I have got a few new pieces for Byard Art for the "Christmas Cracker" exhibition thats due to start on November 27th. One of these - the Cambridge window has grown from being a pure black and white to including the coloured papers underneath the cut. It never felt finished before, looked too stark and too much like just a pattern, a collection of lines. It just seemed attractive and that was that. Adding the colour makes a difference though. I want to know about the window... want to know what goes on in that house... who peeks from beind those curtains? Whats the life that going on beyond the pane of glass.......
