I am a surface designer and have been designing and cutting stencils for almost 30 years - first for printed textiles, then for architectural sandblasted glass and currently for papercuts. I love simple, bold and graphic imagery and am inspired by primitive art, Scandinavian textiles, my Welsh heritage and the beautiful Gower landscape where I live, all mixed up with a love of illustration and design.
It is the hands on, simple and traditional technique of paper cutting which I find most gratifying. With just a scalpel, paper and cutting mat I create contemporary and humorous images which are designed to make you smile.
I specialise in creating contemporary and original black and white papercut artwork, cut by hand or by laser from the finest paper with the smallest of scalpels. I transform my drawings into linear patterns making pictures that exaggerate the decorative characteristics of my surroundings.
