I'm a graphic paper artist working in Silver Spring, Maryland, manipulating colorful strips of paper and turning them into intricate masterpieces. I first stumbled upon the art of paper quilling while gift-shopping for my sister. It seemed simple enough, so I set to work. Ten hours later (over the course of several days!), I completed my first original quilled piece. Now I throw color and whimsy into collaborations with Marshalls, the Rainforest Alliance, Spice 6, along with others. Using only a pair of scissors, tweezers and glue, I transform scraps of paper into large, ornate pieces - as long as I'm accompanied by music or an audiobook! My favorite parlor trick (ask me if you stop by my booth!) is to balance someones cup or mug on a completed piece to convey how strong the finished works of paper are. You'll believe it when you see it!
