Intricate Hand Cut Paper Illustrations by Florrie Thomas.
I fell in to paper-cutting by accident in the final year of my Multi-Media Textile Degree (2010). My course leader saw a paper piece I was experimenting with and persuaded me to do my final show in paper rather than a traditional textile. I haven't stopped cutting since.
My influences stem from antique lace, nature, folk art, print design, typography and nostalgia, which often entwine throughout my work.
As a freelance designer I have had the opportunity to create window displays, commissions, collaborations and also work with other designers in this exciting medium. In the last couple of years i have started running paper-cutting workshops around London and Surrey. This has given me the opportunity to guide and inspire people to embrace the art.
