"Before I lived near Sacramento and my neighbor had many sheep and goats. I gave my neighbor the nickname “goat mom” and here is one of her sheep children."
"This piece is not a painting! This is a rice paper collage. I use only traditional paper called “washi” and a special glue that I make myself. The paper pieces are very fine so I use a tweezers and tear the shapes with my hands, not a scissors."
