Personal Visions: The Passion of Paper

Artist Statement 

What do I love about making paper?  The mystery, the alchemy, the long and meandering process of selecting various fibres which relate to the text and images that the paper will eventually support, wondering how the fibres will interact with each other, thinking about the colours that the final sheets of paper may be, delighting in the soft muted tones that come from working with the natural fibres and dyes I've chosen, such as fine yellow silk threads, cedar and cherry barks, wisteria fibre and dyes from various found lichens of the BC Coast.
