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.

Exciting times! I will be part of Pop Up Festival of Stories!

Well... exciting times! I am going to be part of the 2012 Pop Up Festival of Stories/ Kings Cross! I will be working alongside the wonderful James Mayhew and Clara Vulliamy - I will be making paper cut outs of paper knights and princesses and making paper dragons too! James is curating the space and there will be all sorts of things being made, exhibited, hung and things to just look at , along with sessions of story telling. It will be a full on six hours for the public to come and enjoy!

 On Tuesday we had the planning meeting for what we are going to do. At Eat Shop Do we munched on great slabs of carrot cake and drank cups of tea. It's quite a place.. full of retro crockery and furniture, along with quirky things to buy. I had the sweetest teapot to pour from.






It was the most gorgeous day in London . One of those light, bright days when the light seems silvery clear. I dashed into the National Gallery to see Uccello's George and the Dragon - the inspiration for the paper cuts the children visiting the festival will get to make.. and Trafalgar Square just looked amazing.
