THANK YOU to everyone who attended the 2017 event! Your support means we can continue to be a hub for arts & culture in Prince George! Stay tuned for the date of the 2018 auction.

Since handmade paper is organic and sensitive to the contours and elements of an object, the process of paper casting yields unexpected results. The opposing qualities of handmade paper: fragility and strength, suppleness and rigidity, absorbency and impermeability are the perfect vehicles to achieve the transfer and layering of emotions which are integral to my work.”
