Having Fun with Paper Embroidery

New cards featuring hand and machine embroidery.

As you’ve probably figured out, I’m always looking to learn new skills. Recently, I had a chance to take an embroidery class. I immediately began using what I learned on my cards and in my 2D art. I have been embellishing both with machine embroidery for a quite some time, but I really like the look of hand embroidery and the buttons I can use when sewing by hand.

I am a paper artist living and creating in Albuquerque, NM. Working with paper to create art gives me an appreciation for the beauty and cultural significance of this versatile material. I began by folding origami cranes, and over the years my work has evolved to include handmade greeting cards, book making, boxes and mono prints. Each piece gives me the opportunity to create something useful while expressing myself artistically. I attend numerous art and crafts festivals throughout the country because my intent is to share the joy I experience in making art. My artwork is also available through my Etsy and Redbubble shops.
