Once Upon A Sheet of Marbled Paper

Painting and creating has always been a part of my life but my portfolio developed rapidly after I moved to the heavily forested Pacific Northwest and became a cataloguer for an antique book, map, and print seller.

About five years ago I began adding a variety of paper to my paintings - mainly Japanese and modern paper. But it was at my new job that I discovered the stash of antique marbled paper sheets my boss had! Through her years of collecting she had come across these large sheets, some smaller, of paper that would have been cut down and used as endpaper in old books.

The tree theme came naturally to me, especially after all of my exposure to amazing vintage children's books illustrated by true talents such as Arthur Rackham. "The Dance of the Roots" from 2008 is probably my earliest painting to use the "marbled paper tree" idea. I've been hooked ever since.
