Hand Cut Paper Art by Helen Musselwhite

9 Mar

Paper cutting art is like stippling, it requires a steady hand and loads of patience and we should admire anyone who does it.   We recently came across Helen Musselwhite’s extraordinary hand cut paper art and had to share her works. Here are some samples…

Each piece combines the hand cutting, folding and scoring of a wide range of papers and card that are further worked on to create patterned and textured surfaces. They are then used to build scenes in box frames which are often complex and consist of many layers. This process means that each item of work is truly individual with no two pieces the same. Influenced by the natural world each piece is manipulated to become an intriguing place, a glimpse into another world of fiction and fairytale.

Check out all the amazing paper art pieces on Helen Musselwhite’s website.
