Nomadic Alter, Stitch Collage, Ink on Rice Paper, 14" X 13"

Touching, tearing, marking, stitching, folding, slicing. The sound of paper and all of those acts excite my practice as an artist. I am most attracted to crispness and translucency, so my material of late is fine, crisp, translucent paper often sourced from Japan or the far east. I mark on it using Sumi, Walnut and Acrylic inks combined with some surface design techniques such as batik or stitching. I like to pay close attention to detail, so my work has been said to be finely crafted. If it looks like it’s not, it is on purpose.
