Illustrator and papercutter, Jessica Palmer, has created 75 designs of enchanting hand-drawn pictures for you to color and lose yourself in. The images all have a magical theme, and each one includes hidden charms intricately worked into the design for readers to discover and color in. The book will include designs that fit on a single page as well as those that extend across a double-page spread. Some of the designs will fill the entire page and others will sit within it. Others will have space left for the reader to extend the design themselves. High quality paper means that there will be no show-through.
Jessica Palmer studied Illustration at Kingston University. One day, in a life drawing class, an innovative tutor took the charcoal out of her hand, gave her a pair of scissors and said, 'Cut it out!' Her passion for paper-cutting was born. Her love of detail led her on to using a scalpel to 'draw', as with a pen or pencil. She is now a visiting artist in galleries and museums in London, Bath and Bristol, including the V & A and the National Portrait Gallery. She runs paper-cutting events linked to exhibitions, and she exhibits in London and the west of England. She has produced commissions, exhibition pieces and book illustrations in the US.
Jessica exhibited at the Paper Made show in Summer 2014 at the Jamestown Art Center in Rhode Island, USA. Her paper sculpture "Liber-tea-belle", celebrating the Boston Tea Party through a fantastical depiction of a Georgian bust bearing a tea clipper wig, was the talking piece of the show. The papier-mache and paper piece traveled 3000 miles and was snapped up by a buyer based in Boston, Massachusetts. Jessica also created "This Land is Our Land" a large paper cut depiction of American birds in a huge tree commissioned as a wedding gift for a New England couple involved in preserving wild bird habitats.
Jessica is currently working on a series of cut paper illustrations for "Bistronomy" - a look at contemporary Paris bistros by Food & Wine Magazine and New York Times food writer Jane Sigal, to be published by Rizzoli in New York later in 2015. Jessica's first coloring book Tangle Wood was an immediate best-seller.
