Thought I would share some student work from this past semester.
My advanced paper classes at U of M School of Art and Design had students from freshmen through grad students in architecture and dance. We made cards, pop up books, egg packaging, wearables... As you can see I was blown away. Pics of Festifools parade by the talented Melissa Squires.

Hooray for Interns!!!

The fabulous Lauren and Rachel have been helping out in the studio this week and making my life a joy.
I'm working on two top secret projects: one involves paper and light, the other paper apple things....
Lauren and Rachel are helping assemble the new Ghostly series- due out in late spring/ early summer. This summer is going to be CRAZY! Just secured funding for a trip to China in June- me and Anne Mondro are going to work with a kite master. wooooo!
