Fun Facts: I love to be outdoors in all New England seasons. Our landscapes represent our precious and powerful environment, our carefulness and carelessness. We impact our climate, our environment, our wildlife, and our habitats daily in visible ways.
The act of making provides a calm respite from our complex lives in our fast paced world. My passion for making art emerged from a history of working in the traditional crafts of papermaking, bookbinding, fiber arts, basketry, woodworking and embroidery.... informed by folk and primitive arts.
I love to guide students of all disciplines as they discover and pursue their own passions. Simply making something or breathing fresh air is often just enough to catch a glimpse of one's own destiny.arcadipone.com
