Dyes, acrylic inks and paints, embroidery, weaving, layering and shaping are all techniques that she uses to give the simple paper more interest.

“Paper is infinite in its quality of adaptability.  It is possible to change it in so many ways.  I remain constantly intrigued by what I might do, ” Christine Trexel.
