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.

"Up the Garden Path" - part of Letchworth Rotary's big lunch in Howard Gardens...

On June the 1st I did another sticky vinyl mural event! This time for the Letchworth Rotary Club via the social enterprise Rhapsode for the "Big Lunch event in Howard Gardens, Letchworth Garden City. This was a drop in session for all ages to come and make a sticky backed plastic garden path - a mural to be used for all sorts of things after the event.  It was great fun! and we made a wonderful mural that was vibrant and bright and full of wonderfulness!! And even better - ALL ages were involved and all types of families....so it reached across the social spectrum. That's the great thing about art, and the plastic too; it isn't scary as a medium and anyone can have a go and it just makes people feel good to create and be part of something....


The prepared backing board.....

A shoe box of cut up leaves, petals and flowers to stick down....

Tug o' War at the event!

It was a full day in the gardens with crowds and crowds...

The final mural! isn't it lovely in its flowery plastic stickiness!!
