Helen Musselwhite is a Manchester-based artist who creates amazingly intricate papercuts, many of which feature charming cottages and wildlife in the woods, inspired by walking her dog through the edge of suburbia and the country. How pastoral!
For more information about Helen and her work, see this interview.
Maybe I should try my hand at papercuts, because I keep swooning at the work of talented artists who do amazing things with paper — if you have some time to kill, check out the work of Ann Wood, Su Blackwell, Jayme McGowan, and Peter Callesen. See also the folded paper art of Simon Schubert and the map butterflies by Lucien Warren. You can also check out my own paper collages, which I donated to last year’s Secret ArtWorks fundraiser.
