I guide people through the entire process of The Paper is a Painting...from growing and harvesting source plants to creating and mounting beautiful art pieces. I feel rewarded that so many people have truly loved the whole experience. The teaching can be adapted to any time frame. During two-day workshop, students experience every basic aspect of the process. I give lectures as well as courses of several month's duration.

A vital focus of my teaching is ecological consciousness. People learn how to adapt the process to plants in different ecosystems, harvest source plants in a way that is beneficial to the plant itself, and the comminuty of nature around it. Workshops are a vehicle of awareness of the inter-connectedness of all the members of natures realm.

I feel very lucky to pass on the ancient tradition, and am happy to see the perpetuation of this sublime and rare union of art and craft.
