Handmade Paper/Mixed Media Constructions
I am inspired by other cultures via travel and by the natural world.
My work is primarily constructed of handmade paper. I use both internal pigmentation of the paper and surface painting techniques. I also include natural objects-river stone and shale, reed, bamboo skewers. Also used are recycled materials and metal findings.
