Simply Handmade

I have combined three of my passions in my artwork: my love of art, my love of nature
and my growing interest in Environmental issues.
Because my main materials include handmade papers, pressed flowers, leaves and greenery, branches, grasses, and bamboo, along with recycled items like vintage music paper, scraps of handwriting, canceled postage stamps and luggage tags, I consider myself an Eco-Artist.
Being an active environmentalist and a paper artist, I view my art as a unique opportunity to bring the wonders of nature to those who enjoy my work by enhancing and embellishing their lives in peaceful, beautiful, fulfilling, and Earth-honoring ways.

As a paper artist, I use handmade papers and pressed flowers or other naturals to create a number of unique items:
candle holders, luminaries, note cards, magnets, bookmarks, pendants and necklaces, and light switch plates decorated with handmade papers.
Most of the flowers I use are grown in my own gardens.
All materials are either recycled or as natural as possible as well as non-toxic and nonflammable.

Just as each flower, leaf and other gifts from nature are special and different, each item I create is individually handcrafted and one of a kind.

I hope you enjoy my paper arts and leave my store encouraged to find something awe-inspiring in nature to appreciate everyday.

In addition to Etsy, you can find paperplanet contemporary paper arts at SOTA (Spirit of the Artist) located in Philadelphia, PA.
