New Art and New Paper Lace Web Site!

My latest artwork is taking a new and, I think, interesting direction. I haven’t stopped creating spin art– not at all! However, my spin art is something that I like to create outside, and lately the weather hasn’t been too cooperative. When it gets windy and cold (not that it’s that windy, or that cold, here in Santa Barbara), I tend to dream up new artistic ideas that don’t involve being outside.

So, I have a whole new body of work that does not include any spin art at all. I am really excited about it! I am not quite ready to post pictures of my new work yet, though. Don’t worry, I will! At this point I have submitted all the best pieces to a publisher for possible publication. So, I don’t want to spoil things by putting up pics yet. But soon enough I will have even more new work. I am overflowing with ideas for a whole new series, and I can’t wait to develop it further.

What I will do, however, is drop the hint that my new work incorporates paper lace. In fact, I am so excited about this new direction, that I created a whole new web site on the topic of paper lace. If all goes according to plan, the new site will feature interesting information about paper laces: artists who use paper lace in their artwork, information about the history and manufacture of commercial paper lace, info about antique valentines, postcards, religious cards, and other paper laces, and of course lots and lots of images of lovely paper laces.

In the process of researching paper lace, I also came across some information about papercuts and paper cutting. Needless to say, I am totally enthralled by papercuts. There are some truly amazing artists out there creating them. So, the paper laces site will hopefully feature some artists who are creating papercuts, too. Maybe I will even give paper cutting a try- I already have some ideas for it. Lots of good stuff to look forward to! 🙂

Gorgeous Paper Lace Wedding Invitations

Pretty paper just thrills me! As an artist I enjoy working with and learning about papers of all kinds. Well, lately I’ve been fascinated by paper lace– how to make it, different examples of it that others have made, crafts to make with it, plus vintage and antique examples of paper lace too.

Well, as I research the topic of paper lace, I’m finding that paper lace is typically used in things like Valentines, greeting cards, and wedding invitations– not to mention objects to be used at weddings and occasions, like for example paper lace doilies are often used to set the table at weddings or Valentine’s Day parties. So, I started looking online for various examples of paper lace wedding invitations and WOW some of them are pretty incredible! Just amazing. So I created a page at that is dedicated to lace wedding invitations.

Wish I’d known about them when I was getting married…our invitations were really pretty, don’t get me wrong, but they were not that elaborate. (Oh well!) If any bride were to ask me which wedding invitations are the prettiest and most romantic I would definitely tell her to get paper lace invitations!
