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.

There are commissions, and then there are commissions. Bob and Alice have been the under spoken backbone of the outdoor community In my region for many more than the 20+ years I have known them. They were bikepacking before it had a name. Whitewater kayaking, hiking, back country skiing, mountain biking, and any other adventure sport you can think of are routing parts of their lives. They even owned a bike shop. You name it they have done it.

Alice is truly someone I list as one of my hero’s. She does 100 mile mountain bike races but can generally be found at the back of any group ride helping the last person along. You may have figured out that mountain biking is a large part of my life. It’s a sport I love dearly but also one that egos can get caught up in. When I catch my own ego getting in the way, I ask myself “what would Alice do?”

So when a group of friends asked me to make a piece as a going away present for Bob and Alice I was all in. (They are off to have new adventures on the western half of the continent.) It of course had to include all of the things they love to do and still somehow “feel” like WV. Concepts and ideas rolled and rolled around in my mind. A map was the right thing. But not a real map, a map of feelings ideas and concepts. I wanted it to evoke the lush green mountains, virgin hemlock forests, and thickets of mountain laurel that characterize this part of the Appalachians. Sometimes being less literal leaves space for more feeling.

We will miss you guys but can’t wait to follow your next adventures. And come visit!

Emerald City
- the devil is in the details. After sewing and placing each building and roof I stitch in the windows with colored thread. Finally I outline the windows in black stitching. #abphart #quiltedcollage #handmadepaper #freemotionsewing #paperart

The Sanskrit word mandala translates to “circle” in English. In common use “mandala” has become a term for a circular diagram with radial symmetry that represents the universe. In various spiritual traditions, such as Hinduism and Buddhism, mandalas are used as an aid for meditation. However some striking examples of mandalas can be found in Christian churches, the dromenon on the floor of the Chartres Cathedral, the rose window in Strasbourg Cathedral, and the rose windows in the National Cathedral in Washington DC to name a few.

The trouble with sharing photos is color rendering. I photographed all three of these pieces in the same place at the same time under the same light. They were all made from the same papers but the photos turned out very different.

I met Sue a few years ago. Really we should have met long before. So many friends and interests in common. But the universe has a way of bringing people into your life when you are ready for what they can teach you. We met at a moment in my life that I was ready to let go of some of my limiting beliefs about myself. In the time I have known her I have learned so much, about humility, empowerment, and, of course, how to ride bikes. And ya know, the things we learn while riding bikes tend to apply not just to the trail but to the rest of our lives too. Keep on sending it Sue! #abphart #bikeart #paperart #quiltedcollage

Happy Valentine’s Day!
You are perfect.

I had big plans to make you a lavish valentine. But power’s been out since Tuesday. So instead of a valentine, here’s a bit of silliness from driveway this morning.

Love to you all!

Wow! You guys are great! All the earring have new forever homes. Thank You! I will be in Morgantown today, early afternoon, if anyone needs a last minute Valentine. Earrings are gone but there are still a few journals and “Sweet Secrets” and “Always and Forever” are still available! #abphart #valentinesday
