Product Description

I find it fascinating that a simple fold changes a two-dimensional plane into a three-dimensional form. I have explored this concept in my artist’s books that often open up with sculptural attributes and incorporate calligraphy, photography, paper surface design, watercolor, embossing, linocuts, origami, assemblage or collage.

I also create cloth dolls, fashioning my own accessories to scale while paying close attention to the craftsmanship of Hawaiian or Japanese traditions.

I derive inspiration from the colors, patterns and textures of all things around me and have a deep appreciation for natural flora. Gardens are my favorite places. I strive for harmony in my work with a bit of whimsy.
