I love working with paper as a medium. It comes in such an amazing variety of colors, textures, and weights - an almost limitless source of possibilities and inspiration.
All my cards are designed and crafted by me. Designs usually begin with an idea or a sketch. Paper and materials are then carefully selected for color and texture, as it's what gives life and character to each design. It can be the most fun and the most challenging part of card making... like trying to coordinate 14 different combinations of papers for one of my more complex designs; even a "simple" card can have 5 or more papers. Once papers are chosen, pieces for the design are torn or hand cut from templates I create. Those pieces are then added layer by layer to the blank card "canvas" until the image is complete.
It is truly a labor of love and one that continues to fascinate me, even after over 20 years of card making.
