Welcome to Washington Street Studio and the world of a Paper Artist!

WSS6_pigmented-flax-pulp August is a glorious time in Vermont with cool nights and gardens in full bloom. The summer harvest is filling the farmers markets which are piled high with colorful and abundant fruits and vegetables. The air is crisp with a hint of the cooler weather to come.

It seems a perfect time to launch this website.  I hope you enjoy visiting my world.

The world of papermaking is one of daily discovery. I am constantly amazed at what a versatile medium it is. Up to now my focus has been on pulp painting, but I am also exploring ways to use handmade papers of different fibers with other media, such as printmaking, or mixed media. I invite you to explore this fascinating medium with me.  You can begin the journey by watching the video on this site which takes you through the process of creating a pulp painting, from gathering the plants to making the paper to painting the image with pigmented paper pulp.

I welcome visitors to the studio by appointment, and on Open Studio days, which I will try to post on this site. I am happy to demonstrate the process and show my work to visitors. Contact me if you will be in MIddlebury and would like to come by to see the studio and gallery.

I will be posting announcements for upcoming shows and workshops.WSS8_Artist-at-work2
