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.

As part of my drive to move away from the "papercutgirl" tag - I have started a new Facebook fan page. It's a bit scary as I am incredibly grateful and chuffed to have built up the fans to 260-ish. Sometimes though you just have to grab the bull by the horns and once a decision is made, stick to it and make the changes. Its quite exciting in many ways. I felt the tag was holding me back a lot as it didn't describe my current work very well... so its onwards and upwards!

Happy New Year!!! and a cut paper poem to enjoy...

Holy moly guacamole - where did Christmas go???

Somehow it disappeared in a flash! I have been doing lots and lots of work, so maybe that's it. I have lined up for you several posts all about the joys of cutting up postage stamps...an activity that I thought was VERY simple but has opened a whole can of worms and an exciting path for me to follow.

So here is a very Happy NEW YEAR to you and here is wishing you all the very best luck and happiness's for the coming year ahead.

Here is a cut paper poem for you to enjoy reading and looking at. I did make it as a collage but re-cut it as a plain simple words only poem and I rather like just how plain it is. Click HERE to hear me say it aloud...
