I create bright and bold paper cut collages. I enjoy getting immediate results by using my scissors to 'draw' freehand. I love playing with interesting colour combinations which you can see in my work. Originally trained as a designer, I worked in Theatre, Film and TV for over 15 years. I now make one-off collages as well as prints, cushions and totebags; all of which feature images of my original artwork.
My work can be seen in exhibitions and art and craft events across the Midlands. I run collage workshops from my own studio, as well as out in the wider community. Work is available to buy online at www.emmacaplin.co.uk. I also supply several local independent shops. I am a member of 'The Gallery at the Guild' in Chipping Campden, where my work can be seen throughout the year.Visit www.emmacaplin.co.uk

Margie Harris studied Textiles and Surface Design as a mature student in 2012. Her art is original, unconventional and conveys her slightly eccentric personality. She uses humour alot in her work which is very centred on her kitchen in which she works and draws alot of her inspiration. Recently she has concentrated on designing 'one-off' lampshades. Between November 24th and 25th 2018 her lampshades with complementing her art work were featured at Silwood Gallery, Bildeston, IP77SB, www.a2arts.net
