As an Orkney based illustrator and papercut artist, I am constantly inspired by my surroundings to design and produce work that reflects the spirit of the island and its inhabitants.

My designs tell a story, expressed through the delicate and bold nature of papercutting. Each piece is hand cut with a scalpel to reveal the fastidious detail within the design.
