About – Gemma Barnett Art



Hello it's Gemma here!

I work from my home studio in Meanwood, Leeds. I'm tucked up in the attic with a view over the roofs and treetops. I'm frequently visited by beautiful Holly, our German Shepherd Dog, who slinks in to see me with a wagging tail and a sweet grin. 

I've been making paper cut art for over a decade and decided to launch my own website back in 2020. My products all start life as a sketch before I set about cutting them out by hand. I love the process and how long it can take, it's when I'm at my most content. I then transfer the final design to the computer where I minimally rework the design ready for print. I have created a greetings card collection to date and I'm steadily growing my print portfolio. I'm stocked in some beautiful independent shops here in the UK as well as topping up my online shop so customers can also purchase my work directly. 

I love the idea of bringing colour and bold design into people's homes, it really makes me happy.
