Reader's Art 12: Longing for Home

"I live in a mountain setting and work directly in nature on surrounding lands, intervening in subtle ways with what is found and observed;  using handmade paper to mark, wrap, and expand natural form and elements;  burying paper under winter snows to document process and transition;  and arranging indigenous elements in symbolic forms. "

 Her environmental art projects can be seen at and
The artist has exhibted widely for over thirty years and her collage and artists’ books are in numerous public and private collections internationally.
Her blog is a good way to find out her current projects.

She had a solo show at Susan Hensel Gallery in 2007
