Born and raised in South Texas I have always loved wide open spaces and big skies. As a papermaker I do purchase fiber, but I prefer hiking across the countryside looking for plants with papermaking potential.
Most of my papermaking takes place outdoors. When the weather gets cooler I move inside and begin building lamps, weaving tapestries and creating books.
My goal in all my work is to encourage people to pause—give them "breathing room"—permission not to look for image and meaning but to simply meditate on movement, color and light.
