My love of paper and fiber goes back more than 30 years ago to pen & ink sketching and calligraphy in art classes, and then making and collecting handmade paper. I have designed and produced collages, wedding invitations and donor appreciation plaques with decorative papers and calligraphy. My mother taught me to sew and appreciate fine fabric. She was an outstanding seamstress / designer and still making a tailored silk suit at the age of 84!
It's true that one medium can inspire another. Sometimes merging these creative acts can inspire a new passion. Much like my organic gardening, tending a variety of vegetables means altering crops from season to season. The growth of one creation enhances the growth of another.
Now my passion for fiber has led to creating jewelry with beautiful silk ribbons. I hope you enjoy the look and feel...
