by Terry Tomlinson

The art I make does not refer to anything other than itself. My art is abstracted in imagery, minimal in content, direct in feeling in search of the spiritual dimension that unites us all.



I began making paper by hand in 2002. The fragile and ephemeral qualities of paper are a reminder that all of life is impermanent and has its inherent transformative rhythm. The evolution of paper from wet pulp to the finished form grants me this presence of transformation. When making paper I feel connected to nature in a direct way. I am constantly inspired by its beauty and infinite variety of texture, color and form.

Sometimes words are not enough

She continued her papermaking studies with master paper makers from around the world at the Women's Studio Workshop in Rosendale, NY. Using Japanese techniques and asian fibers she has continued to explore the medium of handmade paper in exciting new ways. Currently she is also working innovatively with plastic film , masking tapes and mixed media.
