A Bit About Me!
I live in Gloucestershire with my husband and 4 sons - I am very outnumbered! We are very lucky to live in such a beautiful place and the nature all around definitely inspires my art.
I am a primary school teacher and have always loved teaching children art, especially using strong colours and patterns.
I started The Lovable Leaf in 2018, making and selling beautiful and unique cut paper art. All my pictures are handmade, some I design and draw all the shapes then cut them by hand; Some I use paper punches to cut the shapes.
I use 200gsm paper, which is strong enough to stay 3D but easy to bend and shape. I have a large collection of different papers with many different patterns and colours. Buying new ones may be becoming a teeny bit of an obsession. I also use old wrapping paper and origami paper too.
Thanks for taking an interest in my art and please contact me if you like any pictures you see or would like to discuss an idea.
