I work from my home studio near Beaver Lake. We have lots of bears wandering around, including this one who works on my website in his free time.
My past studios have been in Charleston, SC, and State College, PA. I've been in Asheville a little over two years now and love it.
Here's my home studio, crammed with paper, paints, fabrics, stamps, and many many old books with great images and patterns for inspiration.
My paper collages and acrylic paintings are on birch panels. I paint the edges and backs to match the main colors. I hand-paint and stamp my own paper.
I carve my own stamps to create different patterns on my paper
I have a lot of colors and patterns!
I use a lot of paint! I apply it with plastic hotel room key cards
My starting point
Back painted, wired, and ready to ship
