Jane E Simpson
Paper is a common element in all of my work. I like giving refuse -- made either by mother nature or human ingenuity -- a second chance.
Inspired by the gift of a Palomino Blackwing 602 pencil and an efficient crank-handled pencil sharpener I rediscovered drawing. Muses found in old black and white photographs are rendered upon old ephemera; envelopes, letters and, calling cards.
In 1985 I moved from the seacoast of New Hampshire to the foothills of Monadnock. I'm a Keene State College graduate, League of New Hampshire Craftsmen state-juried member, I-Park fellow, and a self-employed picture framer since 1989. Boris the cat and I reside in a small house on a dirt road in the woods of Dublin.
