Artist Statement:

Growing up in Maine, with its abundant natural resources and beauty, has had a significant influence on my creativity. By making my own papers, I can convey a sensitivity and detail of nature that cannot be obtained by other methods. I hand harvest natural elements such as flowers and seeds to add texture, color, and design to my papers. I observe the aspects of the natural line formation in Maine’s coastline and plant life and bring my studies to the studio, where I create my voice of nature. Translating my inspirations into botanically inspired copper wire forms, I solder these structures together to use with my own handmade papers and often include wood as an accent. I then apply my handmade papers to each sculpture and then electrify it to create a cocoon of light, an ember glow. My creations take the outdoors in, enabling the enjoyment and interaction with nature on a daily basis. Every piece is one-of-a-kind; no batch of paper is ever alike, just as no form is ever the same. Custom work is always welcome.
