A love of paper & light

(paper cut lamp by Anne Groenn)
I've always liked paper. Me and my Mum used to make paper dollies and snowflakes at the kitchen table. We made papier mache, we decoupaged and kept scrapbooks. And my Dad handed down his love of stationary to me...and my daughter (who has a dream of opening a stationary shop...you know, once she has finished her computer science degree haha). So I discovered early on the tactile qualities of paper that beg to by drawn on, cut, stitched on or folded.

But one day I held my paper cuttings up to the LIGHT and that is when my love of paper began. Together in partnership paper and light make magic! Let's celebrate with some clever magic making people...
