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.

Happy New Year! - ringing the old out and ringing the new in..literally!

Happy New Year! This is the way to greet a new year I think - quite different from other new years eves but special nonetheless. We went to Cambridge and heard the bells of St. Edward King and Martyr's bells ring out the old and ring in the new year. It was just lovely! I even managed to have a go at ringing the bells which was A LOT HARDER THAN IT LOOKED!!!! We all gathered after prayers and drank a little champagne and ate cake. It was so English and rather magical. We drove home, had wine and went to bed feeling like we had been on an adventure.

Beaming smile as the old year ends and another starts!

Ancient bells - and I rang this one!!!
