I am a torn paper collage artist and fiber artist from Rutland, VT. I have been crafting all of my life, but began working with torn paper collage 13 years ago. At the time, I was into card making and had a collection of handmade papers. I decided to try making a collage after seeing a series of mixed media pieces that my cousin (who is also an artist) made. I researched different style of collage before settling in on my current method.
I work in a style similar to chigirie-e, a japanese technique of torn paper collage. But I use unryu paper, a mulberry tissue paper from Thailand, and glue my pieces onto a panel using acrylic matte medium. The collages are created with acid free papers and backing.
I find my inspiration for my collages from New England landscapes. I currently reside in Rutland, VT and am in awe daily at the beautiful mountains, the farmlands and the untouched wilderness that surround me. I am also an avid gardener and enjoy making collages of the beautiful flowers that grow in my gardens.
I began felting about 9 years ago, after seeing some felted items online. I first made wet felted flower brooches, and then began nuno felting scarves. Now I am also working with needle felting, creating pincushions, sculptures and ornaments. I feel that felting is the perfect 3-d compliment to my collages. My felting includes a similar color palette and a more whimiscal approach to the beauty of nature. My best selling items are felted plants, birds and fairies.
