There is nothing quite like cutting into a piece of paper. It gives up its shape straight away. Each piece taken out makes the image rise from the surface. Its very meditative and yet thrilling too.......

Welcome to the website of paper cutting & collage artist/illustrator Vanessa Stone - who makes pieces in response to the forms, shapes and colours seen around her in the places she has lived and loved and found on her travels round England. Vibrant colours in plain and painted coloured papers are cut into with a scalpel of scissors to capture the essence of a place.
