I experimented this Fall with paper, and an exacto knife. I have a new-found admiration of the artists who have created delicate, fine-detailed paper art... it was not easy! My one finger was numb for a few days after finishing the cornfield piece. And I felt a new pain in my shoulder for a while after -- I guess detail exacta-cutting worked muscles I wasn't aware of beforehand.
All in all despite the challenges, I loved working on these paper sculpture projects.
I live in Southern Ontario on a farm with my husband, Dennis, and our two daughters. Painting out of my studio on our farm allows me to stay close to my family and to be surrounded by the natural landscape that continues to influence my work.
