A self-taught artist who walked away from a corporate position to pursue her creative side. Delving into the art of handmade paper was a first step into creating unique paper art and sculptures. Then, by merging her long practiced talents in sewing and quilting, and her many interests -including philately - she has been able to create this unique form of art with postage stamps.
I look to merge the two worlds of art and philately by celebrating it with the postage stamp. The postage stamp is the last remnant of communication between hopeful sender and eventual receiver. Each stamp is a work of art, and sadly disappearing from our mail boxes as electronic communication surpasses regular post mail.
By taking the lead from the stamp, or collection of stamps, I am able to pursue a theme, then create the textile based upon that inspiration leading to the results you see here.
