I am a northwest global-hearted artist
exploring subtle relationships through fine art papier mâché
sculpture ranging in size from six inches to six feet, often enhanced
with my own poetic story writing. My sculptures are one-of-a-kind, labor-intensive
creations which sell for $75 to $5,000. All artwork is signed and numbered.
Some things to chew on: papier mâché
is French for chewed paper. Wasps may be nature’s oldest papier
mâché artists and architects. By chewing the bark from trees
they create delicate, yet sturdy paper nests.
Papier mâché is one of the
oldest art forms, believed to have originated in China where paper was
invented at the beginning of the 2nd century a.d. It is found in every
culture, and while its appreciation as collectible fine art has gone in
and out of popularity, there are many preserved, antiquated treasures
in existence today which demonstrate the versatility and longevity of
this primitive art medium. Centuries old papier mâché can
be seen in books, museums and private collections. Prices for such antiques
can range from $90 to $65,000+.
