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.

On the floor..."A Paper Garden City"

Just before I had these new Letchworth - "A Paper Garden City" pieces framed up, I laid them on the floor in their rough, in-punch-pockets state. I'd never really done that before... I suppose as this is the first time for ages that I have made a very focussed collection of work. When I made the Letchworth pieces four years ago I didn't ever do it, so really its the first time! What's lovely to see is that they all seem to fit together...and there is an integrity to them that I haven't seemed to capture before. They are all so simple... just views of the town, nothing fancy at really. I am as chuffed as punch with them though....
