Inpired by nature, folklore and fairytales.
"Inspired by the duality of fairytale narratives, 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 and cyanotype print techniques. My objective is create works that are intriguing and decorative in their complexity and narrative. I am inspired by the duality of fairy tales and folk lore, with their roots in world closely attuned to nature and in didactic discourse. My creations are entirely hand worked and I am constantly pushing the boundaries of my practice"
