A cut paper artist I use a scalpel to cut imagery, usually animals, into paper by hand. I also like to explore how to use them in conjunction with other artforms
I am a cut paper artist currently living in Kendal and my works usually depict animals. I grew up on a farm in Cumbria; 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 cutting paper from intricate cuts to exploring other art forms that I can use in conjunction with them and my preferred theme of animals is still as strong.
