The Times I get It Just Right


The Part Where I Talk About Myself

An Old Picture of MeAn artist out of Salem Massachusetts focusing on cut paper illustrations. Currently experimenting with tissue paper. Animals are my main subject interest. In particular the chicken and the octopus. I am inspired by folk art, the Fauves,  and whimsy. I take my whimsey super-seriously. I am fascinated by the layering of colors that tissue paper allows for. And the transparency, how you can create lines within lines or allow people to see under the surface of an object.

I’ve also started experimenting with altered books, trying to find old hardcover books people have abandoned and trying to find something fun to add to the inside that will being joy to people.

Lastly, there is the occasional game I’m calling ‘eh’tertainment. (Games that are fine. I guess.) Having fun with the idea of games that people will find delight with, but it will probably only be momentary. Which will be fine for Open Studios and visitors.

I Guess Its A Good Idea To Offer A Way To Get In Touch

You can e-mail me. I tried using a contact form – but there are so many people that find ways to send you junk, that they’ve ruined it for me.
