Papermaking gives me space for my spirit.

The location of my home in Rittenhouse Town in Philadelphia’s Germantown neighborhood holds special meaning to me because it is where paper was first made in the United States. I regularly walk along the Wissahickon Creek amassing yet another amazing collection of twigs, stones, bark — something I’ve done since childhood. I also make occasional forays into Ridley Creek State Park, and every autumn I photograph Martha’s Vineyard. My photographs are printed on handmade paper; cotton/abaca, gampi and kozu.
