Yasemin is a papercut artist based in Gloucestershire and hand cuts all her own original designs from paper using a surgeon’s scalpel. Each piece is complete, cut from a single sheet of paper. Nature, The Arts & Crafts Movement, Iznik ceramic designs and East Asian woodblock prints and tapestries are her main sources of inspiration.
Yasemin regularly exhibits work in a few galleries across the UK and has recently started to have some of her designs published as greeting cards. Heart Gallery has worked with Yasemin before but the fairytale theme for our current exhibition ‘May All Your Dreams Come True’ really excited Yasemin and the pieces she has created for us are stunning.
