A bit about the art and the artist....

 triple cut shot


"Inspired by the layered narratives of fairytales, the intricacies within nature and embracing a life long obsession with intricate detail, delicate paper cut works have featured heavily in my practice for several years. The detailed and complex compositions I create are cut from a single sheet of paper using a scalpel. In addition to working with papercutting techniques I also employ a variety of other mediums including stitch, crochet, linocut print techniques and stop motion animation techniques. My work serves as hybrid snapshots featuring familiar signifiers from much loved stories and using visceral triggers I pull the viewer deeper into an intriguing world of paper and stitch. My creations are entirely hand worked and I am constantly pushing the boundaries of my practice"
