After leaving school, Louise Firchau studied art and design, art history, illustration and typography and enjoyed card making, glass painting and sketching. In 2000 she was inspired to start paper cutting, and in 2010 she started her own online company called Paper Panda, making typographical lyrical paper cuts from recycled paper. Since then Paper Panda has grown significantly and now sells paper cuts and giftware in a range of distinct styles. Louise has also taught thousands of people to paper cut through online groups using a paper cutting starter kit, and this is also available from the online shop. In addition to her online shop, Louise has a strong online presence; she is on Twitter and Facebook (179,927 likes), and has her own (highly entertaining) blog (Mutterings of a papery mind). facebook.com/PaperPandaPapercutspaperpanda.bigcartel.com/the-blogpaperpanda.bigcartel.com Examples of Louise's work can be seen online.
