ABPH Art

I make all of my own paper using materials that I gather from my home in Western Maryland. I began learning to make paper while I was a geology student at WVU. I simply wanted to make paper for my Christmas cards that year. Things have snowballed a bit since then. During the time I have lived here in WV, I been fortunate to experience the spectacular physical landscape of WV by mountain biking, hiking, cross-country skiing, and exploring the many amazing rivers. It is from these experiences that I draw inspiration for all of my art works, as well as many of the materials.

To anyone who is feeling unloved today, I love you. #abphart #quiltedcollage

Alice tripped on a toadstool and tumbled through the fog and mist to the magical towns of Thomas and Davis, WV. She fell in love with this glorious green and mossy mountain scene and decided to stay. “Alice” will be part of the art auction at Frost Fest, a fundraiser for @mllc.wv (mountain laurel learning cooperative). Bid high y’all. These kids give me hope for the future. #abphart #quiltedcollage #mllcwv #frostfest #thomaswv #daviswv

Have you ever had a love affair with a color? If you had asked me two years ago I would have told you I wasn’t a yellow person. It was important for balance but not my cup of tea in general. And then I discovered the rich, warm, buttery gold side of yellow. I am completely smitten. Can. Not. Get. Enough. It is like the stored up sunshine of a warm fall day. #inbloom #sunshineonacloudyday #gold #yellow #abphart #quiltedcollage #handmadepaper #paperart #freemotionsewing

Rime is the spectacularly beautiful hard ice accumulation from freezing fog. It is melancholic and moody. It is cold that has little to do with the number on the thermometer. It is the kind of cold that settles into your bones for a nice long visit. These are the days to stay close to the fire and make grand plans for the future. Hope you are all cozy and warm! #abphart #rime #freezingfog #tundraofmd #nobadweatheronlybadclothes @ Deep Creek Lake, MD

Y’all kept me super busy being Santa’s elf this year. Christmas commissions are always really special but this one really got me. Amy asked me to do a “portrait” for her sister Stacy. Instead of a person she asked for of the tree where they spread their mother’s ashes. ❤️💔❤️ #abphart #quitledcollage #handmadepaper #freemotionsewing

Here in the northern hemisphere the sun has begun to set on the shortest day marking the beginning of the longest night.

With faithful progress,
The Great Sun has traveled,
From north to south again,
And on this day pauses.

So we also stand still,
With the whole Earth,
In quiet thankfulness,
To the Source of Blessing,
The Giver of All Light. - Eric Williams

Have faith friends, the sun will return tomorrow. Good Solstice to you! #abphart #sunrise #soulsticeblessings #quiltedcollage

Today was one of THOSE days. Thanks to Ice storm number 847 we woke up to no power. Found out a very special Christmas commission I shipped last week was still sitting at the FedEx drop off location, four business days later. (Thank goodness I discovered this today! It will still arrive in time for Christmas. I hope) so I drug my sewing machine down to the kitchen where the outlets work on generator power and sat down to make something cheerful. When I finished this evening, the power came back on! 👉 to see pics of ice storm number 847 #inbloom #abphart #quiltedcollage #tundraofmd #paperart #somuchice #iwish*twassnow

“I believe that appreciation is a holy thing- that when we look for what’s best in a person we happen to be with at the moment, we’re doing what God does all the time. So in loving and appreciating our neighbor, we’re participating in something sacred. “ - Fred Rogers

Annie Morris Simcoe (ABPH) is a superstar in sooo many ways! Thanks for sharing your talents, insights, and inspiration today!! Check out this talented artist!!!
Bloom - 25 Days of Minis - Day 14 https://www.etsy.com/…/56617…/bloom-25-days-of-minis-day-14… Bloom is an ORIGINAL piece of hand made paper art by Annie Simcoe. This piece is layers of my own hand made corn husk papers and the lines are "drawn" with my sewing machine using needle and thread using free motion quilting techniques. This piece is inspired by eastern european folk art. 5"x5" artwork 10"x10" frame $115
I continue to be both amazed and in aw of your work. Truly amazing falls short of how exciting it is to see each new project. I look forward to the next offering.
