Greetings from New Hampshire & Welcome to My Art Studio
Custom Wedding Invitation Keepsakes are my passion.
A Beautiful Gift for the Bride and Groom.
What is Quilling
or Paper Filigree?
Quilling is a very old craft. Its name comes from the practice of trimming the gold edges from books, and then winding the narrow strips of paper around feather quills, using the quill for the tool. Once rolled into circles and pinched into various shapes, the paper is used as texture and detail in pictures.
The Quilled Wedding Invitation Keepsake was my very first try at quilling in 1975. I was hooked...
My WildLife and WildFlower designs use my very own technique placing the quill work as the details behind cut-outs. The quilling simulates the feathers in the ducks and birds, the scales on the fish, the veins in the wildflowers, and the fur on the moose. The Herons and Loons are my favorite WildLife pieces.
And now I have big beautiful Landscapes with every mountain, tree and river reproduced with tiny rolls of paper.
I hope you enjoy my website and I look forward to working with you on that special wedding invitation keepsake. I can do up that baby announcement or a 50th anniversary card for another special gift.
