About the artist
Papercutting is a really labour intensive practice that requires an enormous amount of concentration and a steady hand. With a bit of patience it produces beautiful results, backache, and a touch of eye strain - I love it!
I always start a piece by deciding on the subject. York is my adopted City so I obviously had to create a scene of my favourite place. Over the years I’ve found Foxes, Hares and Blackbirds to be amongst the favourites and, although the jury’s out with Crows and Mice, I make them anyway!
All my work starts out life as a unique paper cut. The originals are cut by hand using a sharp scalpel, and are one off designs. The originals are then scanned and laser cut , which are hand finished to produce mounted open edition prints or limited edition prints
