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, editorial pieces, collaborations and also work with other designers in this exciting medium. Last year I created a paper art based project which will be featured in a V&A Book coming out this summer.
