A Peace of Paper
A descriptive phrase for expressing my state of being as I work at peace and with respect for the art of handmade papermaking.
I am a graduate of the University of Delaware with a B.A. in art education. The focus of my career has been teaching art. Creating handmade paper has been my avocation for 10 years. It is a peaceful process from inception to completion. I create the medium in which I work and work with the medium I create. The quintessential creative experience.
I have been honored to feature my work at the following venues:
Hotel Dupont Gift Shoppe
Michael Christopher Design
Hagley Museum Craft Fair 2001-2004
