a time honored technique made modern
Why do you feel that for over one thousand years, people are still fascinated about marbled paper?
There has always been an inherent desire for beauty in civilization. Marbling hits this on so many levels with color, pattern, and the versatility of being utilitarian or elevated to art. As marbling spread throughout Europe, it became accessible to all economic levels which fueled its spread to other continents.
How do you find inspiration to inform your work?
Inspiration is all around me! Nature and math, symmetry and texture. I look at everything through the eyes of an artist seeing color first, then design and often seeing something as what it could be rather than what it is. Music, opera, and perfume also serve as inspiration.
I know that you head to Europe every year, why is that annual journey so important to you?
