About me

Occupation Retired
Location State College, Pennsylvania, United States
Introduction I'm self-taught in Paper Filigree or Quilling. There is still something about work done by hand; the label “handmade” means you know that something unique and individual has been created, a “one of”. Whether it is a hand knitted scarf or a hand painted birdhouse, the magic is always there. Someone has taken the time and effort to create a small treasure. No two leaves or snowflakes are alike; no two handmade items are the same. The artistic quality comes straight from the heart of the designer. My work features Quilling (paper filigree) a centuries old craft of rolling or twirling paper. The art was born over five hundred years ago with artists discovering that strips paper could be rolled, scrolled, fringed and shaped into designs. I have been quilling for six years and truly love the craft. Quilling is very versatile; it can hang on a wall, decorate a card or box and even make your Christmas tree special. Hopefully you’ll enjoy my creations and your day will be a little brighter because of them.
