Water provokes my ecological curiosity, and ushers my understanding and use of water as a papermaker beyond what springs easily from the studio's many coiled hoses. Maybe it is where I live, or the vitality of water I encounter as a papermaker, but somewhere along the way I began to wonder about the matter of rain in my life. My contribution to robust and tender conversations regarding the power, importance, and mattering of the stuff of our lives explores water becoming rain, becoming paper, becoming writing.
