Artist / Personal Statement
I am a paper artist and with each piece I finish, I am drawn anew into the pleasure of the process. Landscapes inspire me to work, but I've recently enjoyed creating "cut calligraphy" sacred pieces. I love paper and in the words of Katharine Butler Hathaway, "...it is the commonest substance in the world, and had for me an uncommon charm because of all the things it suggested to my mind that could be made out of it. It was something precious made out of nothing."
Accomplishments / CV
Among other activities, I've worked as a muralist, juried the Regional Artist Project Grant for Western North Carolina, redesigned t-shirts for a children's museum in New Hampshire, and won Best in Show for a project for the North Carolina Zoo. My work has shown in galleries in Boone, NC and in Greensboro, where I now live.
