First interest in hand papermaking process: 2014
First piece of handmade paper: 2014
First handmade paper artwork: 0
Beginning of active practice: 2014
Years teaching hand papermaking: 1 year. I have taught printmaking for 2
I exhibit my prints frequently, complete commissions and teach workshops. I graduated from art school 4 years ago and was looking for a way to personalize my prints, and combine narrative media. I began exploring Art Books. The first step that I took to learn book making was paper making. I have now been making paper for 4 months now, primarily using recycled paper (I go as far as to collect scraps from a local kindergarten class) and cotton pulp. I watched a few of "Paper" Alice's videos online and completed my at-home learning using books by Helen Hiebert. I am now very interested in furthering my understanding of art books and hand papermaking, even looking into graduate schools now. I am also interested in joining online communities of papermakers around the world.
