For many years, I have worked as a graphic artist and elementary school art teacher. One day while studying desktop publishing in Manhattan, I wandered into a large paper store. It was love at first sight. I had never seen so many beautiful papers before. One of the most intriguing things is that they were from all over the world.
I was so overwhelmed that I didn't know which ones to choose or what I would even do with them. I managed to pick four different sheets. On the subway ride home, I was so excited that I wanted to open the package right there. I refrained.
On the days that followed, I experimented with the papers. I designed and redesigned and thought of ways that I could share the beauty of them with others. As a result, I started creating such things as books, clocks, picture frames and jewelry.
