Hello, I'm a paper artist based in the UK.
I find the greatest inspiration for my work comes from nature. I love the patterns, symmetry, colour, geometry and texture. I love the detail. I then try to give it a modern twist, taking inspiration from the design world- such as fashion, interiors and graphic design.
This fusion of styles has helped me produce paper art of all shapes and sizes for brands, installations and editorials for magazines. So far this has included faceted sculptures for luxury jewellery brand De Beers and a giant bottle of Asahi for the lobby in Asahi HQ in the UK.
My career began as an After Effects animator, followed by live action direction for the music industry and eventually becoming creative director and co-owner of Mr and Mrs Smith; an animation production company in Soho, London. I have 18 years experience in commercial design work.
My experience in animation and graphic design has led to many exciting collaborations over the years; producing logos, branding and animations for some really fun projects.
