The product is often strong but delicate, translucent and versatile. Bringing paper into being from plant material is part of the allure for me. And a particular intent in plants as materials, metaphors, shapes, forms and colors, in architecture, gardens, food, medicine, textiles and wilderness is the other facet of my equation."
