My papercuts are either created by hand or machine cutting. The hand-cut pieces are created by painstakingly removing each tiny piece of paper using a scalpel, scissors and swivel knife. Machine cut pieces are cut to my design. What's the difference? Well, where a machine is exact, a hand-cut work is a guaranteed one-off. No two are ever identical no matter how precisely I cut as small imperfections may show.
All my work is hand drawn and then cut out, whether by me or my machine, so you are buying something truly unique, personally designed and unusual. Where the machine cut pieces are designed to be produced in higher numbers (and can therefore be sold at a lower price), bespoke work is always handcut.
I use a variety of papers to suit the theme and mood of the piece I'm working on, although I prefer to use organic and handmade papers. I particularly enjoy using Japanese Washi - beautiful, strong papers in a variety of colours and textures.
