Is a paper artist & illustrator based in Southsea, UK
Hello! I'm Jessica. Paper enthusiast and hopeful thinker.
Since 2015 I have been creating papercut art and illustrations. First from hilly Durham, then the quaint streets of Leiden in the Netherlands and now Southsea.
Throughout this journey I have enjoyed telling the stories of the cities, the people and the cultures I have experienced.
Whether that be watching the historic miners gala from the deteriorating 16th century window of the art gallery I worked in...
Or sitting in an eetcafé, eating borrel (deep fried Dutch snacks!), watching cyclists live and move their lives on their bikes, including furniture, art and children!
I hope that through my pictures you gain a window into another life or another playful paper world.
