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.
