Sharon Curtis - Printmaking & Paper Cuts
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.
