LOVE my baskets. I had an odd piece of corner furniture with triangle shelves and these baskets fit it perfectly. The color I requested using Sherwin Williams swatches was spot on and I will most likely be returning for more!
Upcycling paper destined to trash or fire has taken over my life, my time and my heart.
In 2005 I decided to do something using all the of paper in my mailbox that I discarded almost every day. I tried paper mache but it didn't give me what I was looking for : a way to keep the prints and take advantage of the colors and words. It took years to find my way. I experimented all kinds of paper and found the ones I like to work the most. Magazines give me colors; copy paper gives me the white accent and creates contrast; security envelopes give me all the monochromatic patterns; used coffee filters the rustic earth tones; phone book pages give me the soft paper for more delicate or small items.
I create collections with one of each piece of wall artwork, vase, bowl or plate, angel, ornament and jewelry following one theme - medieval , nature, flight, Victoria Regia and others.
In 2012 I opened this first shop on Etsy , then I separate jewelry from fine art and home decor pieces and opened my second shop The Jewel of Paper only for jewelry creations.
2014 was a very special year for my art. I received awards from the Fredericksburg Center for The Creative Arts in Virginia US and from The Williamsburg Art & Historical Center in Brooklyn NY. 2015 I received the Best of 3D Award from Bentonville Art Market.
I do what I love and I make it with love.
I started my artistic career when I was 14 years old reproducing one of my sister's artwork and have never stopped creating. In 2005 I incorporated recycled paper to my artwork and found a whole range of possibilities with fine art, vases and jewelry
