I create handmade paper artwork from recycled clothing, military uniforms and plants. I served as Artist-in-Residence at Cape Fear Botanical Garden from 2016-2018, where I engaged the community in papermaking processes, including helping military veterans make paper from their military uniforms, and teaching children about plants and nature through art-making. I've taught papermaking and art workshops in a variety of other settings to all age groups, including demos and pop-up papermaking workshops. Here are examples of my workshops, demos and handmade paper work and exhibits.
