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.

Getting across what the surface of my work looks like.... some close-up photos

One of the biggest problems I have encountered is photographing my work so people can see what they really look like. Photos taken straight on show the composition but never really show the surface. I often cut through several layers of paper, so the pieces are very much constructed. Cut and stuck and re-cut again. So I took some photos on this grey November morning. The light was lovely - cool and grey and perfect to capture the surfaces on the cut paper. I am having one of those working through the lists doing days....time for another coffee I think!
