In the Wind Paper Cut Collage July 23, 2018 22:05

This is one of a new body of work that I am creating based on the silhouettes of flowers and leaves. It represents my take on nature and is colourful, joyful, simplistic, strong, graphic and stylised. It is inspired by a bed of wildflowers and I have reduced the imagery down to shapes whilst maintaining the movement and vitality of the flowers in their natural environment.
It is a cut out with collage and it’s a joy to be using blocks of colour having previously concentrated on the striking dynamic of black and white.

I’ve been experimenting with some new cut out work. I cut the shapes to use ina collage but I like the negative space. And I like the boldness and lack of detail!

New idea March 06, 2018 21:10

These are tin cans which have been covered with a print of one my designs on water and tear proof paper. I’m really into recycling and finding alternative uses for products in a stylish design-led rather than rustic way.

Paper Cutting Templates February 27, 2018 12:33

As experiences and hand made gifts become ever more important amongst people who are moving away from mass consumerism, the best way to create a heartfelt and thoughtful gift is to make it yourself. With this in mind I have decided to launch my distinctive paper cut designs as templates and kits. They will be available online only and can either be purchased as a digital download, a file to be emailed to you or a physical ready to cut template which will arrive in the post.
