The Paper Artist by Janna


Hello, my name is Janna and I originate from the beautiful Roman Spa Town of Buxton, Derbyshire. UK.

About me

Originally from Buxton, I left for the Isle of Wight to become an aircraft mechanic. I then spent some time in Switzerland where I met my other half, and from there moved across the pond to his homeland, getting married and starting a family in Michigan, USA. Several years later, here I am, back on the Isle of Wight.


I started paper cutting as a hobby in 2011 and I was eager to find an approach to paper cutting that was unique. Playing around with different techniques, I developed a multi-layered style, produced with great attention to detail and a carefully selected colour palette. All my work is hand-cut, giving it a bespoke and authentic finish.

My work

Having honed my craft, I officially started my business in 2014, and have since watched as the market for multi-layered paper cuts has grown. I like to think I have inspired a few people, and I hope I can inspire you with the eclectic selection of paper cuts I have on offer here.

I love selecting the colours for my portraits and trying to make them as detailed as possible!
