Sharon Curtis - Paper-cut Artist and Printmaker
I am a contemporary printmaker and paper-cut artist based in the rural county of Herefordshire and a graduate of Hereford College of Art.
I create three-dimensional artworks on the finest quality papers, with intricate designs that are completely cut by hand using the equivalent of a surgeon’s scalpel. Each piece is a one-off as there will always be variances between two apparently identical pieces (no lasers, or dies are used). I only create a very limited number of each different design.
I also create limited edition prints from a process called reduction lino. Reduction lino involves sequentially cutting away the lino, applying ink and printing in a press. This is repeated several times, destroying the lino master layer by layer as each colour is completed.
I am based in the beautiful town of Ross-on-Wye. I have a studio within Brunel Workshops, which historically was the Old Bus Depot and is now a hive of activity with a unique hub of craft designer/makers; three of these units will be open during h.Art Week. The workshop is situated very close to The Garden Store, which is perfect for lunches. We have ample parking in front of the building, and we are within easy walking distance of the town centre, and other venues.
