Welcome to Cuts a Fine Figure.
I'm Yasemin Wigglesworth, the papercut artist behind Cuts a Fine Figure. From a small home-based studio in Stroud, I hand cut my own original designs from paper using a scalpel. Each piece is unique and entire, cut from a single sheet of paper. Nature and The Arts & Crafts Movement are my main sources of inspiration.
Framed pieces are sold through galleries, some papercuts have been licensed commercially as fine art prints and cards, and I regularly undertake commissions. I design bespoke papercuts at prices that suit all. I also work in collaboration with photographer Kate Beer to create silhouette portraits of children.
One of my Thumbelina papercuts has been used in the 2015 redesign of the Rosengard shopping Centre in Odense, Denmark, the home town of Hans Christian Andersen. An image of this can be found in Gallery I.
I recently designed and hand cut a window display for Richard Booth's Bookshop for the Hay on Wye Literary Festival 2015, celebrating 150 years of Alice in Wonderland. The display is cut from the text of Alice in Wonderland.
Thank you for taking the time to look at my work.
