"I'm rather addicted to cutting into paper with a sharp scalpel or a pair of scissors..... there is nothing quite like it. Paper is a wonderful material. Its so much of our everyday in the things we read, the things we touch. It has a wonderful smoothness and coolness, and cutting into it is rather fantastic too. You get results straight away so it feels thrilling and exciting, almost as though the images are just waiting in the paper for a scalpel or scissors to reveal it. Its very contemplative too though. There is nothing I need when I am working - no food, no drink, nothing to listen to. It's very Zen. "
