About Zaza Lewis
Zaza combines hand-cutting paper skills with colourful and textured fabrics to illustrate her ideas, without the need to use any paint.
The white spaces in between the cuts provide a breathing space and are important for the colour balance of the image. You experience a different picture from afar, and as you get closer it will start revealing itself piece by piece to the viewer.
You will find a happy mix of street scenes, nature, landscape and seascapes and even still life amongst her work.
Her unique and distinctive style is a combination of her passion and knowledge of textiles for many years, as well as a career as a freelance graphic designer and map maker for the publishing industry.
Originally from France, Zaza has won 3 awards for her paper-cut and fabric pictures, at exhibitions in the Midlands and Monmouthshire. She works from her studio amongst the creative community of Banks Mill in Derby.
She is also happy to discuss any commissions.
