This piece was commissioned by a family for their Nanny who was leaving them after 5 years! The brief was to show the Nanny with the children, in an outdoor setting - like the gardens of a castle.

This piece was commissioned by a previous buyer. My client specifically requested an apple tree with the quotation by WB Yeats. He wanted there to be a William Morris feel to the piece, which I hope I've achieved in the style and design.
These two little owls were commissioned as an accompanying piece to the "Butterflies" papercut (see below).
Both pieces measure 7" x 7"
This papercut was commissioned for a new school in the prairies of Iowa (Prairie Green School). The brief was to produce a piece portraying a central tree with a girl on a swing on one side and a boy reading a book on the other side. My client also specifically wanted the Iowa hills and prairie grass to be represented in the papercut.
This house cross-section was specially commissioned by a lady for her best friend as a very special house-moving present. My client particularly requested that the illustration showed a home with 3 children, a husband with a treasured music collection, cut flowers in every room and trees surrounding the house. The remainder of the details were left to me to decide.
If you would like to see your home illustrated as a unique cross-section papercut, please contact me at email@example.com
