I am a 1983 honors graduate of Ferris State University (Ferris State College, then!), where I majored in Graphic Design. I then worked in ad agencies and design firms for many years, doing all things graphic, which then morphed into design using computers (and all THAT entails!). However, as time went on, my interest shifted to more dimensional art in various forms. I currently focus on paper, including cut paper sculpture and handcast paper, but with an emphasis on mache. I also have a special love for recycling materials that would have otherwise gone into the trash. Many of my papier mache projects wind up using pieces and parts of plastic, metal or wood that came from packaging, manufacturing or scrap.
