Artist, Wife , Mother and Pet Owner.
I first learned the art of papermaking while attending SUNY Oswego
from my print making professors. I was a Fine Arts major concentrating
in Lithography and Intaglio printing but when I learned the art of
making paper I feel love with the medium. I was both intrigued and
captivated, the feel of the pulp, and the limitless possibilities. 25 years
later, the abstract convoluted pieces emerged into complex pieces that
are hand poured, colored, texturized and layered to create pieces of work
that reflect my interpretation of nature. The theme of all my pieces
is to capture a moment in time when light reflected upon the colors
and textures illuminating the land scape.
I live in a small town in western New York with my husband, son, 2 dogs
and 2 cats. My daughter lives just a jump away in the city
of Rochester. The village of LeRoy is surrounded by farmlands and
small woods. The Oatka creek meanders thru the village. Plenty to
inspire my art, but I have also been lucky enough to have
travelled around the country and visit Europe. My camera in hand,
I try to capture that moment that inspires my internal drive to capture
the beauty that surrounds me.
