I am a self-taught professional papercut artist living and working in beautiful North Wales, UK, with my partner and our little dog Millie. I create bespoke and original artwork, inspired by the things I encounter around me and my love of nature, using traditional techniques.
I initially discovered papercutting in 2009 and instantly fell in love with the artistic process and using paper as a medium. I draw my designs in reverse on the back of the paper (which means I have perfected writing backwards - can I add that to my CV?) before cutting it out by hand with my scalpel, this takes hours to complete.
I am also a member of the Paper Artist Collective. If you would like to see more of my art, I document a lot of my work in progress and finished designs via my Instagram page.
I was born and raised in London until the age of 7, when we moved to North Wales. Growing up surrounded by beautiful countryside and wildlife has definitely given me a lot of inspiration for my work! I am also hugely passionate about the environment, climate change, endangered species and mental health - so regularly try to include these issues in my designs.
I am a huge lover of everything 80's (if I could actually sing then Africa by Toto would 100% be my karaoke song), hiking, cooking, anything craft related, and binge-watching documentaries, property programmes and awful reality shows.
I have previously exhibited my work in places such as the Brick Lane Gallery in London, the Chester Arts Fair, and joint exhibitions in Yorkshire and Oslo, Norway.
