My work is with Hanji, a traditional Korean paper, that is used to make a variety of household items.  I shape the paper over cardboard structures that are hand cut, then I use various methods to decorate each item, from cutting out paper designs to printing my own photographs onto the paper.
I've been working in this medium for around 15 years and make regular trips to Korea to update my skills and learn new techniques.  Hanji is little known outside of Korea and I'd like to share my passion for this craft by introducing it to a more global market.
