Do you ever come across an Artist or a particular Art Series
 that you love soooo much and is so undeniably your style that you think,

"Why didn't I think of this?????"

Well thanks to Visual News 
I have found an artist that I am severely jealous of.....

Little Red Riding Hood, 2010

"I often work within the realm of fairy-tales and folk-lore. I began making a series of book-sculpture, cutting-out images from old books to create three-dimensional diorama’s, and displaying them inside wooden boxes." ~ Blackwell

 Edensor, Derbyshire, A Guide to, 2009

Out of Narnia,  2009

Down the Rabbit Hole, 2009

The Woodcutter’s Hut, 2008

Jorinde and Jorindel, 2010

Pandora opens Box, 2009

"For the cut-out illustrations, I tend to lean towards young-girl characters, placing them in haunting, fragile settings, expressing the vulnerability of childhood, while also conveying a sense of childhood anxiety and wonder. There is a quiet melancholy in the work, depicted in the material used, and choice o of subtle colour." ~Blackwell

Betty in Cloudland, 2007

Birds of the Open Forest, blue, 2006

Wild Flowers, 2006

Hazel Tree detail, 2010

"Paper has been used for communication since its invention; either between humans or in an attempt to communicate with the spirit world. I employ this delicate, accessible medium and use irreversible, destructive processes to reflect on the precariousness of the world we inhabit and the fragility of our life, dreams and ambitions." ~Blackwell
