About Caroline Rees

 
 
  • Biography

    I work from my studio on the coast of the beautiful Gower Peninsula. I specialise in creating contemporary and original black and white papercut artwork. I love simple, bold and graphic imagery and I aim to create designs that bring a smile. 

    I am inspired by the naivity of primitive art, the humour of childrens' drawings, the draughtmanship of early C20th artists, the bold designs and decorative motifs of Folk Art and Scandinavian textile designers, and of course my Welsh heritage and stunning coastal surroundings.

    My creative journey has included the design of fabrics, glass and paper and I gained recognition for my architectural sandblasted glass, meeting the Queen with my glass in 2011.

    My contemporary, original papercuts, for which I won the Best Maker in Wales award at Made by Hand Cardiff in 2015, complement both modern and classic interiors. They make perfect gifts for any occasion and a selection may be personalised on request

    If you can’t find a papercut you like on my page, then please contact me to discuss bespoke work.
