A truly handmade and unique portrait.
Hello, I'm Liddy Parry and I'm an illustrator based in Buckinghamshire. I started my career by creating digital illustrations on an iPad using a basic stylus and drawing app. I loved the way a quick sketch could capture so much detail and expression, with just a few strokes of the stylus. I then swapped my stylus for scissors and started to explore the wonderful medium of paper, from there I was smitten and my Paper People were born!
Each piece of paper is cut out, assembled, stitched and stuck by hand to create a truly handmade Paper People portrait. No two Paper People can ever be the same as each individual piece is cut out by hand, with scissors, without the use of a template.
The best way to describe what I do is 'drawing with scissors' as I never use a pencil or pen to draw out any part of my work. I absolutely love the little details which can be achieved with a little thought, a lot of patience and a clever little snip here and there.
