I paint on paper, silk or glass, decoupage any thing that does not move, I make jewelry, play with polymer clay, cast with plaster, and generally mix the techniques and materials. I also paint with paper, using paper as my palate instead of paint.
I am proud to say that I am one of very few artists who create decoupage jewelry and jewelry made with handmade paper beads.
I just love Japanese and Indian paper, which I buy direct from the manufacturer. This ensures the quality and range of papers I have access to. Buying paper at the local craft store limits your choices.
Color and texture are my main inspiration. I find things “talk to me” and the design just happens. I never sketch or plan what I going to do it just flows.
