"My tweezers, nail scissors, cutting mat, glue and scalpel- without them I’m nothing!  " 




Where do you make your paper Art?

I make all my pieces in my studio in Hove, UK.

How long have you been working with paper?

I've been working with paper for approximately 8 years, but full time for one year.


How would you describe your approach to paper art?

Every time I create a new piece of work I try to think of ways I can push the techniques or style, experimenting with paper stocks, lighting or design. I love contrast and detail, texture is definitely my thing!

Where do you find inspiration?

I find most of my inspiration comes from the beauty and details in nature and creative industries such as fashion, art and music. My favourite projects are when I get to try and fuse them together.. 

Describe your work to us in 3 words?

Textural, colourful, playful.


What are your favourite papers to work with?

Up until now I've been using colourful slightly textured paper, but I really want to start working with metallics and coloured vellum!!


What tools could you not live without?

My tweezers, nail scissors, cutting mat, glue and scalpel- without them I’m nothing! 


What is the best thing about working with paper as a medium?

It’s peaceful and calm, you have to be really focused and concentrate but also kind of zoned out at the same time - it’s a weird meditative state which is really therapeutic. Hours can pass by and I don’t notice them.

Who are your favourite paper artists?

Oo this is a tricky one, the paper artist collective has so many talented artists! If I’m pushed I guess my favourite paper artists are Yulia Brodskaya and Crystal Wagner.


What are you working on at the moment?

I’m currently working on 3 Paper birds for a lovely client in London and a commercial job for The British Heart Foundation.
