Paper Arts

Paper was invented over 2000 years ago ~ my obsession with handmade paper began about fifteen years ago. I was drawn to the sensory aspect and zen-like quality of making paper by hand. Crafting a sheet of paper is like cooking a gourmet meal. The care and time invested provide a textural and visual feast. It is very satisfying~ an art in itself.

Of course, once I started making paper, I needed to do something with it. My papermaking evolved into mixed media artwork and hand bookbinding. It has been a natural progression.

My name is Cheryl Mahowald and I am a paper geek.
