Kirsty M is a papercraft artist/illustrator from the Black Country – she’s very recently relocated and is now based in Cornwall.
Last year Kirsty was asked to be part of Handmade Boutique, the pop-up shop shop in the Great Western Arcade. In response to this she created a beautiful, intricate piece of artwork of some recognisable Birmingham landmarks cut out of paper (shown below).
Here’s a little about Kirsty M:
Armed with a pencil, a scalpel, a piece of paper and a lot of patience I create beautiful hand drawn and hand cut art work. All my designs are unique, created by me Kirsty Mason. I don’t use computer software or any fancy cutting machines to create this art. I just use my imagination and my tiny hands to create these beautiful pieces of art, that would look amazing on any wall. I use only the best quality paper and spend hours hand drawing and hand cutting each piece.
As well as buckets of talent, she must have a lot of patience and a steady hand.
We’ve written about Handmade Boutique a few times, but just incase it’s new to you, here’s some handy blurb about the shop:
Handmade Boutique is a collective of Midlands based independent designers that make beautiful home styling and lifestyle products and gifts for all ages. The store’s unique concept allows local independent designers to bring their beautifully hand made products directly to you on the high street. from bath products and candles, to jewellery, ceramics and textile pictures, you’ll also find a great selection of greetings cards and gift wrap – so you’ll never get stuck when out gift buying again!
