Each item is created in my home studio in Florence. I use Italian materials whenever possible, and all of the photographs offered as prints & postcards, or incorporated into calendars & collages, are inspired by the cities & landscape of my adopted country. Prints, postcards & other images are printed with archival inks on professional photo papers or fine art papers.

About PaperSynthesis

PaperSynthesis was born from a love of paper; I like to think of it as what happens when paper & imagination intersect. As October unfolds, the introductory collection of handmade books, postcard sets, prints, collages & calendars will gradually become available.

Some items are one-of-a-kind (collages, some accordion book sets), but most (postcards, prints, calendars & many of the accordion books) can be made to order in any quantity; this may require up to one additional week beyond the usual 3-5 days to prepare an order.

I have been working with words, images and papers for as long as I can remember; assembling these elements to create beautiful things is my passion. Reflecting my love for items made with paper, PaperSynthesis came about as the natural extension of years spent collecting papers and working with everything from oils to watercolors, photography, artist books, decorative boxes and collages.

I am often seduced by the creative work that’s showing up on websites and blogs these days, and have come to enjoy the process of designing my own virtual pages. But I still find that nothing comes close to the experience of holding something in my hands. I love feeling the weight and texture of the paper, the anticipation of possibly discovering something on the back, or on the inside . . . of seeing how an item might change form as I turn it over. And of course there’s the pleasure of finding a place for it in my life. My hope is that each PaperSynthesis item brings you the same enjoyment.
