"Paper is such a wonderful material. It has a coolness and a warmth and there isn't anything quite like paper cutting. As you cut away an image is revealed from the surface, so you cut away more and the piece comes to be. It's totally absorbing. When I am working there is nothing I need apart from a piece of paper and a pair of scissors"

I am paper cutting & collage artist and I use a scalpel, scissors and layers of paper - paring down & abstracting, cutting away and adding shapes to capture a place and a time. My inspiration comes from the amazing and wonderful English architecture & landscapes around me which I find by exploring by car and bike and walking. Making my work is all aided by plenty of cups of tea, cake and toast! To find out much more - click HERE
