Muswell Hill based Rosalind Freeborn has always been an artist but particularly loved working with paper. Whilst a student at City & Guilds of London art school she had a garret studio space of her own and spent hours not only studying the techniques of the 'old masters' but exploring ways of using paper in an imaginative and creative way.
Ros launched Papershades as a way to make her art available beyond a work on canvas. The concept may sound simple but it's taken a while for the idea to develop. She found a way to 'reinvent the wheel' - to create two sizes of wheels which can grip panels of paper and make a lampshade which fits comfortably and safely on the average lamp stand or room light.
Papershades presents a range of designs which are based on Ros's paper collage artwork.
