From tree-hugger in the Midwest, to Saguaro-hugger (virtual!) after moving to Arizona decades ago, I’ve been persistently passionate about nature. My “paper trail” began as a professional news journalist and business writer, and it settles today on the artful possibilities of paper in all its forms and transformations. "Lowly" paper, delightfully hands-on and unpretentious, lends itself to upcycling, recycling, and re-using. I believe in originality and craftsmanship, and work to create practical, one-of-a-kind pages and pieces that bring joy and connectedness to our beautiful but fragile natural world. Though primarily self-taught, I have studied with widely known paper maker and fiber artists, and taken numerous other workshops with book artists.
Member of the annual spring Oracle Artist Studio Tour and pre-holiday Oracle Arts & Crafts Market (see OracleTown.com), PaperWorks: the Sonoran Collective for Paper and Book Artists (paperworks.info), and sell my work at many of the Tucson Arts & Crafts Assn. shows (see TucsonArtsAndCrafts.org).
My work has been exhibited and sold at Tucson Festival of Books, Tohono
Chul Park Gallery, Tubac Center for the Arts, Tucson Art Museum show,
PaperWorks Holiday Show, and Tucson Public Library. I teach seasonal
workshops at Oracle State Park on stab binding and papermaking.
