Hand cut papercutter and explorer of how to use them in conjunction with other artforms
I am back on my stall in the Indoor Market in the Westmorland Shopping Centre every Wednesday 9-3:30. I have some new cuts, coasters and bookmarks. Message me on my Facebook page if you need any more info.
It's been anonther month of art, 29 pieces done including sketches in pencil, biro and fine line pen with watercolour wash. My new years resolution is to do 1 piece of artwork a day whether it is cut or drawn.... for this months prompt list I have decide to do a mix of cutting and drawing. Please follow me on Instagram or Facebook to follow my progress with this challenge.
I offer commissions for pet portraits or other animal portraits. Please find more information and previous commissions on the page linked below and feel free to contact me if you require more information or have any special requests.
I am a Cumbrian lass and grew up on a farm just five miles outside Kendal. This has had a considerable influence on my work. I have always had a passion for animals and found pleasure in drawing them. During my college course in 2010 I was introduced to the art of paper cutting when shown the work of Peter Callesen and did go on to use some paper cutting in my final show piece. However it wasn’t until my final year at university in 2013 that I started to use paper cutting as the sole basis of my art. Since then my practice has revolved around paper cutting from intricate cuts to exploring other art forms that I can use in conjunction with my papercuts and my preferred theme of animals is still as strong.
