Kim Bevan

I work predominantly with paper, using this material to make paper sculptures and artist books. I teach workshops and make a range of handmade gifts.

I am a mum of two and I started PaperBased in September 2019, after more than 10 years teaching at college, I wanted a better work life balance for my family.

I teach a range of workshops from my studio at Kingfield Hall on Brincliffe Crescent and at different locations around the city, which include various bookbinding techniques, paper flowers, paper cutting, printmaking, paper jewellery and rubber stamps.

As a visual artist I work primarily with paper, as it is such a diverse material that can be made into so many things. I make artist books in my main practice and use techniques such as printmaking, paper cutting and collage and create framed pieces using paper cutting and collage. I also make notebooks using old envelopes, wedding albums, guest books, paper bouquets and badges, using words and imagery from books. I sell my work at fairs and through private commissions.
