About

For the love of paper.

I am an interdisciplinary artist and book & manuscript conservation technician living in Philadelphia. My artwork is often fiber-based, from paper-making to embroidery to book arts.

In 2009 I took a sculptural papermaking class at Penland School of Arts and Crafts which would alter the course of my artwork forever (thank you, Helen Hiebert!). In this class I was able to delve into the magical qualities of my chosen paper fiber, abaca, a material that often defies categorization. This paper is translucent and delicate in its beauty, and yet it is strong enough for sculpture.

The jewelry pieces I create are small-scale representations of my large-scale sculpture works, creating a symbiotic relationship. My sculpture inspires my jewelry, and my jewelry inspires my sculpture.

I love paper, I love to make this jewelry, and I believe that love is apparent in each unique piece. The materiality and strength of my one-of-a-kind pieces will surprise you.

Please contact me with any questions or interest. I would love to create a custom piece for you!

    Recently I graduated with my MFA in Book Arts & Printmaking. My beliefs in tangibility and authenticity above all else extend to my jewelry. I am thrilled to be part of the arts & crafts community in Philadelphia, and I would love to hear from you!

Welcome to Never Contented Things! My handmade paper items are one of a kind, and of my own design. A piece may share aesthetic similarities with another, but no two are entirely alike. I am available to do custom orders for bridal parties or any other need; just contact me with an inquiry!

It is my policy to refund you the extra amount if you have been overcharged for shipping. I do not offer refunds on the purchase price of my items.
