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.

"Artisan" exhibition at Tunbridge Wells Museum and Art Gallery


Here is some more of the new pieces I prepared for "Artisan" - an exhibition of artist makers works at Tunbridge Wells Museum and Art Gallery. I travelled down on a bright Friday, getting up at the crack of dawn to avoid too much traffic on the Dartford Crossing. I have wanted to go to Tunbridge Wells for a very long time, to see the very famous Pantiles. It's such a beautiful town, and on a day like this, it was magical.

The pieces below are all A4 in size.You can see some fantastic photos of the show HERE - on David Hodgkinson's Photography website. There really is some excellent work on show in the exhibition, a real celebration of the hand-made...

You will see that these new pieces have a different feel... I have been bolder in the images.... and a bit quirkier too. That's my legs in the stripey one...

Affordable Art Fair Hampstead - new works on show with Byard Art


For the first time, Byard Art took my work to Hampstead Affordable Art Fair and it was a chance to make some new Cambridge pieces as well as some quirkier ones... can you see my legs cut as paper? I was so pleased when I made these... they made me smile so much. I must do some more, and gets tights shopping!
