Autumn Leaves Paper-cut

For some time I have admired the work of amazing paper-cut artists such as Rob Ryan, By Charlie's Hand, Emily Hogarth and Loula Belle. Today I decided to have a go myself as the design process is not a million miles away from a lino cut.  Also the cutting of paper is a lot easier on the fingers than cutting lino, but it was very fiddly and nerve racking as one slip and you've ruined the design.

I thought I'd post the cutting work in process.  I'm quite pleased with the finished result but I think I'll stick to printmaking or possibly use it as the start of a wrapping paper design.
