Artist Statement: I make iris-folded cards for all occasions. Iris folding resembles the opening of the eye's iris or the eye of a camera. Washi (Japanese paper produced in cold, running water) composes each figure. The resulting paperwork is delicate and intricate. The background cardstock is acid free, lignin free and chlorine free. Since the washi paper is not acid free, an archival spray preserves the beautiful colors and protects against fading, discoloration, dirt and moisture. Each iris-folded card can be a gift in itself or serve to enhance a thoughtful present.
