Paper artist - Ursula Dunnewind

Ursula Dunnewind's work was on display on our campus during the fall semester. Like so many things on my list, buying her work before the end of the exhibit was not accomplished. I asked my friend how to contact the artist and was successful in reaching her at her home.

She graciously invited my husband and I to stop by and view her work. We were rewarded with great conversation and the chance to learn about her craft. Ursula is a delightful person and we enjoyed sharing ideas about education and learning about her life.

We purchased some her pieces to give as gifts and one series of four delicate plant silhouettes. Can you believe that she uses only small scissors and a needle to do this intricate work?

Friday, we got a beautiful card from Ursula. The photo was so appealing because of the spring flowers and her words were so sweet. What a wonderful, talented woman artist.
