Specialising in handcrafted papercuts, contemporary limited edition prints and bespoke commissions.
Having graduated with an MA in illustration from the University of Brighton, I worked in the illustration world for over ten years.
My love of drawing started at a very early age. At 5 years old, I won an Art competition held by the Liverpool Echo. The prize money was £1! My winning picture was a drawing of ships sailing at sea and planes flying high in the sky -
all done in wonderful black line. I treated myself to a Cowboy hat with the prize money!
Years have passed and my need to be a cowboy has died down...but my love of black line has remained as strong as ever and provides the foundation to much of my artwork. Carefully cut black lines now appear in the form of intricate papercuts, or in the bold graphic images of people and places.
I live in the beautiful city of Cambridge, working full-time as an artist.
Papercuts, prints and bespoke portrait commissions
City architecture, classical statues, and glimpses of nature provide the visual backdrop to the London and Cambridge Series of papercuts and prints. Within the striking architectural structures, isolated figures are usually seen preoccupied with digital technology; using it as a way to quickly capture themselves within the landscape.
The limited edition prints can be displayed individually or work perfectly when matched with others in the series, adding a vibrant burst of colour to any living area. Available in a combination of Limited and Open Editions to suit personal preference.
The papercuts are carefully cut by hand and can be displayed in a traditional frame or placed between two sheets of glass/perspex in a floating frame.
I’d also love to hear from you if you’re interested in having one of your favourite photographs turned into an original piece of artwork. All artwork is hand drawn, rather than computer generated, using fade-proof graphic pens and acrylic paint.
