A Card by Any Other Name ...

I've been making handmade greeting cards since I was a child and it's always been a source of pleasure. Cards can be versatile and quick; either allowing for the exploration of a single theme or for an ever-changing evolution of ideas. Some of my favorite greeting cards were made by Margret & H.A. Rey, the creators of Curious George. I recently saw they're exhibit at the Contemporary Jewish Museum of San Francisco.

Most of my cards were made with found supplies, including old magazines, books and sheet music, in addition to gauche, pen and ink, and water color.
