Paper Artist

I have always been fascinated by the endless possibility of paper, the magical quality of light, and the wonder of the natural world. I bring all these things together by creating beautiful nature-inspired paper cut lightboxes. Using only a pencil and a scalpel, I draw, then hand-cut and layer card, adding lights to create a dream-like contrast between the layers to tell a story or capture a special memory, with secret details to be found over time. Most lightboxes are A5 and they are all professionally framed in a bespoke box. More recently, I have been working on creating a series of pieces consisting of smaller cuts, around a theme, to record the positive impact the natural environment has had during these strange times. Every print that is sold raises funds for different wildlife charities. I run papercut Lightbox workshops around Surrey - no experience is necessary - click on my Linktree for all upcoming dates and to book: https://linktr.ee/DawnThornhill
