Moonrise at Sunset
Each moon rise is unique, whether full moon or crescent. On this occasion, I viewed the rising moon while the colors from the setting sun saturated the clouds and sky. Bowl made from black rag paper pulp. Moon cast using multiple paper scraps. Clouds are silk fabric. Sealed with beeswax.
About the Artist
I create sculptural objects and relief images using handmade paper pulp as my primary medium. I also incorporate things found in nature. Images in my art reflect my response to seasonal changes and personal experiences. My art explores the dialogue that can emerge between the container, a bowl for example, and what it contains, an image, a memory, or an emotion. My objects of handmade paper are the containers and the images they contain begin the dialog. An important part of art making for me means acting in a responsible way toward the earth’s resources. The process I use to make handmade paper has low impact on the environment. I make paper pulp from renewable plant fibers such as Cattail and Iris leaves, and by recycling post-consumer paper. I incorporate found or repurposed items in my art to add detail to my images.
