Many people think that art requires plenty of expensive supplies and that it’s impossible to make art without special equipment. Pippa Dyrlaga proves them wrong with her paper cut works of art that are insanely beautiful and simplistic in terms of the instruments used.
As you can guess, all Pippa uses is paper and cutting tools. Her inspiration comes from the world around her. “Most of the time one piece will lead to another, but I sometimes get an idea that I just want to try out, something I have been thinking of for a while,” the artist says. “I have always lived in quite inspiring and green places, filled with local wildlife and flora, and much of my inspiration stems from being outside and enjoying it, and feeling like a part of it.”
You can follow her on Instagram for more art.
Was really pleased that this one found a new home today! We had a lovely chat about my process and this piece. Im back home now after such a lovely weekend, and it's back to work tomorrow (not that it's ever a bad thing, I can't believe I'm lucky enough to call this my job). But for now I am happily sitting in a comfy chair with a fan pointed at me, wondering if its cooled down enough for a cup of tea yet. Thanks so much to the ever wonderful @theeggfactoryhb for hosting us again this year! . . . . . #papercut #paperart #papercutart #artist #art #paperartist #cutpaper #paperbird #kirigami #openstudios #yorkshireartist
Where is all the rain?! Here in Yorkshire, we are used to it raining at least every other day so all this continued lovely weather is very confusing for us. A little Totoro. More exciting news soon on the theme of Miyazaki films. . . . . . . . . #papercut #totoro #studioghibli #miyazaki #papercutting #paperart #papercutart #papercutartist #paperartist #myneighbourtotoro #cutpaper
Who knew pink was so hard to photograph! All finished for my contribution to the @paperartistcollective collaboration with @colorplan_papers. 20 of us took part, each given a different colour and had to create a work within 20x20x20cm space. My colour was #candypink. I decided to recreate a 3d version of one of my smaller dry stone walls. It remind me of walking on the hills of Yorkshire on hazy summer evenings, something we had plenty of lately. I seriously need to work on my 3d skills but I really enjoyed it!

I could do with a good shake up this afternoon, like this little ship in this bottle. I'm suffering from the dreaded afternoon lull, whilst I try and forge on and get a commission piece finished. Maybe a nice cup of tea instead. My piece 'The Kraken', which I made last year. . . . . . . . . #papercut #paperart #paperartist #kraken #shipinabottle #octopus #papercutart #papercutartist #cutpaper #nautical #papercutting
It was royal wedding day today. I've never watched one before but we put it on and I actually quite enjoyed it. Thoroughly enjoyed watching the guests faces at different points in the ceremony. If you haven't had enough of fancy buildings today, here is a church, a cathedral and a castle. The last one is in huddersfield where I am from! It sits on a big hill overlooking the town.
