Mixed Media Gallery

I love combining unusual papers and found objects. As a result, these works are diverse, rich in texture, and have a three-dimensional quality. Certain shapes appeal to me and I may use a found object solely for its form or I may select it for its symbolic quality.

Using a process that is very meditative, I hand-make some of my smaller papers and the resulting sheets are unique in form with irregular edges.

If you see anything that you like in the archive gallery, you can always request a similar commissioned work.
