I love the intensity of Cave Paper‘. This is their walnut paper with several layers of walnut dye coating the paper, producing a leather-like tone. The rich tone makes a nice backdrop for these vividly colored papers from Shizen Design.
I recently had a virtual meeting with a lovely musician, Helen Davey. She does these amazing Sound Paintings, and she just launched a really cool project called Project 52: 52 pieces of music in direct response to  52 artworks shared by 52 different artists for 52 weeks.

She’s responded to my piece “Holding” as part of the project! I’m never quite sure if these links will actually show up once published, so here is a link to her sound painting, and I’ll try to embed it below as well. Read her response to my work and listen to the sound painting!

I love collaborating with other artists and find that it takes my own work to a new level. I’ve collaborated with musicians, videographers, visual artists and poets. Do you have work to share that has been produced in collaboration? I’d love to hear about it – leave a comment below.


About the 25 Days of Paper: I’m going to be a crazy blogger in December, featuring cool paper products, projects, blogs, books, or papers each day. Join in the fun by reading along! I’ll also post links on my FaceBook page. Enjoy the season!
About 100 x 100 Paper Weavings: On September 23, 2013, I started making 100 daily paper weavings. I’ll finish on New Year’s Eve!
