I am a painter and a card maker, with a love for paper and the process. During the Delavan Center Open Studio event, my studio will feature many things, including prints and originals – but will be primarily “The House of Cards” as I have created a series of small investigations and images that lend themselves to original notecards. Perhaps its my love of mail that drives this project: my interest in letter writing, of sending and receiving something so personal and intentional. I am interested in the idea of how and where we spend our time. And, so, it seems that the time it takes to hand write a note is worth something more these days. Or at least it is to me. I look at these cards as the waiting space for the right note to be written.
