Artist Statement

Since the mid-1990s, I have been exploring the modern applications of marbling on paper.

Marbling is a historical technique of floating paints on a thickened liquid, then manipulating those colors on the surface with tools such as rakes, combs, or a stylus, and transferring the design to paper or cloth by making a contact print. 

I have marbled commercial and handmade papers, coffee filters, wood objects, and cotton and silk fabrics, among other items.

My decorated paper study has included Turkish marbling, Japanese marbling (suminagashi), and European paste papers. 

In addition to learning historical patterns, I enjoy exploring motion and movement within my work.  I also explore mixed-media decorative techniques.
