My hand cut style is infused with many influences, including lino and wood cut and retrospective styles like Art Deco for example. Invariably, my experience in design and branding has gone some way to influence the bold simplicity which is indicative of my style.
Although hand cut paper is intrinsic to my style, it also bridges collage and mixed media. Card and paper is used in the majority of my work, but as my style continues to evolve I have explored different materials, like flame-painted and burnished sheet copper for example.
Inspiration for my work typically comes from nature and fauna with a particular affection for my local Worcestershire and Herefordshire countryside. As my style has evolved I have also explored other subject matter like popular and music culture for instance.
