In the Studio:
I’ll be launching my next online class in about a week and I’m busy creating all of the prototypes for the six book structures we’ll be creating from April 10th – May 15th. Here’s an example of a flexible book structure that can be displayed as a lantern, folding screen, wall or window hanging.
I discovered the work of Finnish artist Raija Jokinen thanks to a reader of The Sunday Paper. Her work is quite unique and I encourage you to tour her website. Jokinen developed her own technique based on painting, drawing, papermaking, embroidery and textiles, and she reflects on the spiritual and physical nature of man. Thanks to everyone who sends me ideas (and donations)! I truly adore sharing these goodies with you each and every week.

Another reader sent me this article featuring the collage work of Linda Klippenstein
. The inspiration for this series, called Women Walking Strong
, came from the women she works with who live difficult lives and are socially isolated. She’s planning a large community project, taking canvases to a variety of locations to include women who otherwise wouldn’t participate – women who are incarcerated, elderly women who are isolated, and students, which will be exhibited on International Women’s Day.
These molded 3D paper sculptures by Tiffany Miller Russell
are really unique! Click through to watch a timelapse video of her creating one.

is an ongoing project that began almost 20 years ago when Pamela Paulsrud shared her vision with friend and papermaker Marilyn Sward. It is about trees, the earth, people, and paper—the stories and their connections. Read this touching story about the beginnings of the project. Treewhispers is ongoing – follow along and contribute a tree round if you feel moved to do so!

This is a sad article about the fate of a newspaper
. I enjoyed how one of the press men thinks of himself as an artist. The Tennessean pressroom has printed newspapers for 82 years and in March, the presses are stopping for good.
