I moved to Tucson 7 years ago. I enjoy doing the silverpoint because no one else does it. I like combining different mediums and seeing what effect I can get from that. Ink is always my base and I go from there. I started doing ink stippling several years ago, on top of the silverpoint. It gives a very soft look and creates more contrast which silverpoint just won't do by itself

I enjoy making and using origami envelopes and letter-folds, of which there are many! This one-piece model is a favorite of mine, and so simple to fold! It's fun to find colorful paper designs for this model, and people enjoy receiving this unique hand-made envelope-letter. The diagram shows how you can adapt this envelope fold to also hold a card, photo or other flat enclosures.
