COLLAGE / CUTWORK. 

New work. After having a studio clear out at the start of this year, I decided to do something with the piles of little paintings and drawings which I originally created to scan in and do something digital with, for patterns or illustrations etc. So, I began to cut them all out, by hand, and have created a whole new way of working that is similar to what I would do in Photoshop, only manually! The possibilities are endless, and I have a lot of exploring to do!
