Personal Visions: The Passion of Paper

Artist Statement 

One of the pivotal moments of my life was when I saw paper pulp being used as a painting medium. The amazement which I 
experienced then still pulls me back into the studio again and again. The process is just unpredictable enough that it is a 
constant challenge.  It demands a partnership with the practioner, eliciting give and take, requiring a fine balance.
The alterations which occur from the time of making to the completion of the drying cylce are dramatic enough that this too
adds to the element of chance. Finally, the finished work is unlike other more traditional painting techniques as the material
and the image are so inextricably visually intertwined. I am still enamoured.
