Growing up in Michigan, I have always lived near water. I love every step in the papermaking process and my artwork is created with my own handmade paper.  A procedure called pulp painting makes the fine lines and patterns. It is no coincidence that the artform I love requires water for its birth.

My work includes both 2-dimensional wall pieces and little 3-dimensional paper houses. My pieces often relate to the house as a refuge for both people and other creatures.  The wall pieces reflect the colors of the storms and the calm, placid days that we see in the Northwest.
