I am a handmade paper artist. I have always loved paper. ANY kind of paper. Even a new spiral notebook was a thrill to me. But once I made my first sheet of paper I was hooked. I love to paint my sheets in bold colors, often very randomly, so the sheet just pops. It's hard to cut up a piece because I feel like to will be all used up. But when I start creating one of my functional art pieces it comes alive in a whole new way.
