A love of paper is what drives my work. Handmade Japanese paper, along with treasured pages from old Japanese books. With their calligraphy, dust, and wormholes, they bring hidden stories with them. Although sometimes called paintings, my collage work includes neither paint nor ink. Just the colors and textures of the paper, accented here and there with single threads, gold leaf, or a piece of silk. Born on the East Coast, I've lived in London and Japan, and now work out of my studio in Mill Valley. I've had many solo and group shows, and my work appears in collections on both coasts and in London and Cornwall.
