British artist, Helen Musselwhite does with a scalpel and paper what our minds do in a deep dream: build layer upon layer until something fantastic and otherworldly has been created. Many of her paper cut artworks are comforting and familiar, like her many forest scenes and portraits of woodland creatures (see next pages), but she's equally capable of creating eerie or grotesque figures, like with her wonderful series of skulls featured above and on the next page.
