Paper Works mostly for Fun 


The constant presence of Children's books in my years as a tutor, inspired the use of scissors & paper, following the example of such illustrators as Mollie Bang, Robert Sabuda, David Pelham, David A. Carter,David Wisniewski & DeniseOrtakales.   One day I began cutting out a symmetrical face, became enchanted, and for the next few days found that every spare moment, I would go back to work on this Green Man.  It is a fascination that has altered my artistic medium. Watch the slide show & see the evolution in the 1st two years.
