Paper artist, Candy Wooding, creates memories and celebrates life through her calligraphy, bookbinding, paste papers and other media on and with paper. Her Spirit Vessels can honor a life well lived, be a celebration of love or a look inward into the soul. Her art touches people at the heart level, the emotional part of their being. There is both a reverence for life and a joy in Candy’s artistry.
Lovingly and carefully crafted, Candy’s work conveys a view of life as seen through her lenses of loss, love and joy. There is contemplative and spiritual feeling in her work—in words, color and symbolism. Her work can be sacred or whimsical in nature, but always has intense feeling attached to it.
Candy’s art is collected internationally. Her calligraphy has recently been featured in Bound and Lettered. One of her Earth Spirit Vessels was in the International Show at 23 Sandy Gallery, Sacred|Profane. Candy has been blogging about since 2011, sharing her art, thoughts and how-to projects.
