Suzanne Breakwell Paper & Wire Sculpture

I make sculptural pieces constructed from wire, pages from books, paper mache and cotton rag papers.

The inspiration for my work comes from my fascination and absolute love of the natural world and all its glorious flora and fauna.

I use various self-taught techniques to describe and build character to my chosen subjects. I hand paint ink onto the cotton rag papers and pages to help bring life and vibrancy to each and every piece.

It’s the potential of paper and what it might be able to become which sparks my imagination. I find the delicate yet strong characteristics of paper make it an interesting and versatile material to work with.

I will be exhibiting at The Contemporary Craft Festival in June and so will look forward to presenting a selection of my work for you online here very soon….
