Made by Nicole: For the last few years I've been creating most of my work from the ground up. I used to buy patterned paper, stamps, embellishments etc. Now I carve my own stamps, gelli-print or paint paper instead of buying it and make my own decorations. While it's more labor intensive, it's also loads of fun (especially since I'm not a shopper).
Jennifer McCurdy, "Emotion fills me when I see perfect forms in naturel. The ordered symmetry and asymmetry of nature's forms reveal the growth of life, the movement of life. I strive to make my work reflect the balance of life around me. It is important that the patterns I see around me are integrated into my forms. Finished pieces hold elusive glimpses of the balance between the convex and the concave, and light absorbed and reflected."
