Carpe Diem Papers is an illustrated life. My paintings & cards have a childlike innocence, imaginative color palette, a sweetness and a fondness for the little things in our journey that make us happy. Makig someone's mailbox happy makes me happy. Send mail. Write x's and o's. Buy good stamps. Tell someone hello, thinking of you through the mail. You don't need a reason.
Recently, I have been moved to explore the common ground between sculpture and painting. These pieces are made of paper and paper clay in combination with images from my paintings and mounted on wrapped canvas. I expect them to evolve and morph as I continue to explore this new dimension.

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.
