John Speight has been a professional papercut artist since 1990. Although John is the third generation in a line of silhouette profile cutters, he decided not to cut traditional portaits and instead set about creating his own unique range of contemporary silhouette designs.
Each one of John’s pictures is individually hand-cut using a scalpel. This ensures that each papercut is a unique original. With few exceptions they are cut in one piece. They are then mounted onto hand-tinted watercolour paper and signed on the mount.
