Art Quotes

“Cutting into colour reminds me of the sculptor’s direct carving.”

– Henri Matisse

Colour was not given to us in order that we imitate nature, it was given to us so that we can express our emotions.”

– Henri Matisse

“If you want a golden rule that will fit everything, this is it: Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful.“

William Morris – Arts and Crafts Movement founder

By creating these colored, paper cutouts, it seems to me that I am happily anticipating things to come. I don’t think that I have ever found such balance as I have in creating these paper cutouts. But I know that it will only be much later that people will realize to what extent, the work I am doing today is in step with the future.

– Matisse

Fiona Scott-Wilson cut-paper artist

Fiona Scott-Wilson qualified with distinction as a graphic designer at Lincolnshire College of Art and Design.  She has worked in many art mediums and explored different styles of working over the years, undertaking commissions to design for Tesco Finest Chocolate range, a prestigious Vodka brand commissioned by Arbiki and many others.

Fiona Scott-Wilson left the UK in 2006 to create an art retreat to paint in Italy and France. In 2014, she started to explore new ways of expression and was inspired and influenced by the artist Henri Matisse, who made cut-paper a viable art form. Fiona swapped her brushes for a scalpel and paints for coloured textured papers. Initially creating bold, colourful, simple graphic works that reflected her love of nature. Her influences are: the Living World, the Arts and Crafts movement, Japanese woodblocks and Oriental design.

Bella’s Lavender Garden (2022)

 In recent years Fiona’s cut-paper artworks have continued to evolve with more complexity and detail. She uses paper more like a brush stroke in paint, using a scalpel with more precision to hand cut intricate fine details, like shades of fur, flower petals and feathers using a diverse palette of multiple shades of coloured papers to create an elaborately unique artwork, a “cut-paper painting”. 

Every component piece is carefully hand cut and positioned in place, to create a harmonious,  colourful and unique image . Movement and moments are captured in the living world and collected into themed series such as The Water Lilies,  The Autumn Series, The River Bathers inspired by Monet’s works exhibited at l’Orangerie and Impressionists collection at the Musée d’Orsay in Paris. These series and works are viewable in the Gallery.
