Each piece starts its' life as wet pulp. I upcycle (tear up colored paper), whiz it up in the blender with water to make a slurry. This goes into a vat. I dip my screen into the slurry and turn it out onto a surface with decorative objects. When the pulp dries it is 'cast' with designs. Fibers, metallics and ephemera mixed in with the pulp become embedded into the dried paper. It is a delightful and messy process which has taken over my small kitchen. It is a forgiving medium with happy 'accidents.' I have a passion for all that is unique and hand-made. I create one-of-a-kind pieces exploring themes such as faith and antiquity, utilizing embossing, embedding and casting techniques. Hand-spun art fibers add a rich textural component to some pieces. I happily accept commissions and will work with you to accommodate your spatial and color needs. Thanks so much for your visit! My sincere desire is to inspire and uplift others. See less
