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.

Its been VERY busy! - have moved house.....

Its been extraordinarily busy since January! Not only has the Slices of Life exhibition at Salisbury Museum been put up - more news soon of that as its a big thing! I have also moved house and county!!! We moved at the beginning of April to Arlesey in Bedfordshire. Its just over the border from Hertfordshire so I have moved about 13 miles, but it feels very different here. I havent lived in a village since I left home at 19 and its so fantastic to be back in a village. we arent on a main road so all I can hear are the birds and the trains in the distance as they go down the East Coast mainline. Sometimes I can hear the football at Arlesey Town Football Club, but beyond that, its very quiet and laid back.

The house is so lovely. Not very wide but extends to a garden of 120 feet at the back, it over looks a paddock with horses grazing. I keep pinching myself its real and that I am not in a holiday home that I have to vacate after a couple of weeks!! Its got this wonderful kitchen window cut through. I think that will be a place to make still life's and draw. draw, draw....

Horses grazing out the back....

Down by the river with buttercups that spread as far as I can see!
