Layla May Arthur is a student currently studying Fine Arts and completing her second year at Minerva Art Academy in The Netherlands. She was originally born in Jersey, C.I. Layla has always had a passion for storytelling and narratives, discovered from her thirst for books. Within her own artistic practice, it only goes to show that her passion for books led to a practice with paper.
The Paper Dialogues exhibition (Jersey C.I 2016) inspired Layla to bring knife to paper. The use of a blade releases imagery from the paper, and her illustrative style centres on a balance between which parts of the paper to cut away and which pieces to leave.
