My name is Ellie Sampson and I am an architecture graduate and model maker from North London. I am the model maker and workshop manager at Haworth Tompkins architects and in my spare time I am available for paper-cut commissions. I am constantly engrossed in comic books, films and travelogues and I try to emulate this interest through the narratives, themes and compositions of both my architectural work and paper-cut models.
