Artist Statement

I have always held a fascination with the plant kingdom and patterns in nature. My intent is to capture the movement of growth and infiniteness in plant and animal life. I create space and naturalistic elements in the 2-D cut- outs by carving and weaving multi- layers of paper into shapes, excising parts to build on line and detail. When using markers on paper, I allow the bleed-marks from previous drawings to impress the direction of what will be next.

Botany books reference my work in the anatomy of plants along with Japanese flower design for elegant balance and composition. Above all, nature itself, cyclical in beauty and ever changing inform these works.
