Inside Out

As a society so often consumed with outward appearances and notions of physical beauty, it is easy to forget to appreciate our ‘insides’. In this exhibition, delicate hand cut paper works will seek to bring the inside out and emphasise the inherent beauty of the body, in all its parts and forms.


Venue: The Wheatsheaf Hotel

Opening night – Thursday 7 March, 6pm – 8pm

Exhibition open from 8 – 31 March

In this exhibition, emerging artists Janaki Lele and Ellen Schlobohm explore cultural and personal connections to paper art and papercutting. These art forms have evolved under different styles within many cultures the world over, and the artists reflect on these traditions through their respective heritages, cultural identities and experiences. Creating intricate and beautiful contemporary works that re-imagine the papercutting traditions of Sanjhi (India) and Scherenschnitte (Germany), in the artists will invite audiences to share in their skills and passion for paper.

Opening February 14 at 6pm at Nexus Arts

February 15 – March 22
Open Tuesday – Friday, 9am – 5pm

Hey there…

I’m so excited to share with you my beautiful new website! It’s been some time in the making with lots of stops and starts and plenty of cups of tea. Included here are photos of my artwork, both old and new. A lot of the work is available for purchase so if something catches your eye don’t hesitate to get in touch via my contact page. You’ll also find information about upcoming exhibitions and workshops as well as other news.

So here is a little about me and my practice – I am an Adelaide based paper artist who has been working in paper since 2008. My work is created by meticulously cutting away paper to leave behind delicate tableaus. I am drawn to paper as a medium for its simplicity and strength. My work often includes botanical imagery and patterns and I love to watch this humble material come alive as each cut is made. Over the years my papercuts have become increasingly intricate and I have started experimenting with technique and scale. At times I also incorporate printmaking, installation and jewellery into my practice.

Thanks for taking the time to check out my new website. To keep in the loop about what I’ve got going on you can sign up to my mailing list at the bottom of the page or check back here for the latest updates.
