Pippa Drylaga is a paper cutting artist and printmaker based in Yorkshire, England. She completed her Degree in Contemporary Art Practice at Leeds Metropolitan University where she also completed her MA in Art and Design and Curation. She first started paper cutting in 2010. The paper cut works are hand cut from a single sheet of paper drawn first by hand and then cut with a scalpel. In an interview with My Modern Met she says this about her drive to finish a complex project:
“For me, the process of making the artwork is as important as the finished piece. It’s a very meditative process and one which I very much enjoy. Due to the fact that it is so delicate, it’s a very slow process which can’t be rushed, and so it has to be something you enjoy doing! It isn’t a chore, you can get into a rhythm and it becomes very easy to spend hours working.”
