Paper Scissors Rock - Papercut Artwork & Illustration

Sam Hickman is a designer-illustrator from Kent who creates her pieces from paper by cutting them from a single sheet or by collage. ​

She studied Theatre Design at university and subsequent creative employment as a set designer, scenic artist and mural artist followed before she discovered the art of papercutting. She began working under the name Paper Scissors Rock in 2013 creating bespoke personalised papercut commissions. ​

Bold lines and shapes are seen in all her pieces which regularly include typography too. Puzzling text into a shape is her favourite. She is inspired by colour, and by silhouettes which must be as simple and descriptive as possible. The joy of the calligram designs in this store comes from having to really look to see what they say...which will hopefully make you smile. It's all about the smiling. ​
