Kip Perdue

Paper Cutting Artist

I am a paper cutting artist based in South London. I moved to London after living in Chicago, Auckland, Oxford and York. I began to teach myself paper cutting in 2012 after recognizing that my previous creative endeavor, creating replica chain mail armor, was not terribly portable, so I switched to paper. 

Much of my work focuses on what I would call personal cartography. I like exploring new places, ideas, and techniques. Much of my work is about maps, as they've always fascinated me. I sell my work through Etsy, Folksy, and my own studio Kartegraphik. You can also find me on instagram.

Paper cutting is an easy, affordable, and quite impressive technique to know. It's easy to do with kids, by yourself, or while listening to a tv show. I aim to pass on what I've found so that others can do it too!
