Anna Cook is another newcomer to Design@HEART. She makes intricate, multilayered papercuts depicting birds and animals in their natural habitat.
I am a self taught paper cutter with a background in Design and Printmaking. When creating a new design I seek inspiration from contemporary surface and pattern design and combines this with a fascination for the detail in old botanical illustrations.
The depth in my 3 dimensional work is created by layering intricately cut sheets of paper, and depict woodland animals and birds in their natural habitat. I then emboss and curl the feathers to give the subject more body.
I am currently experimenting with LEDs to light some of my larger pieces, which adds an element of design to my work.
