Artist Statement

The natural world provides both inspiration and materials for my art. My sculptural fiber pieces offer a focus for contemplation and connection to nature’s mystery and grace.

Some of the sculptures begin with armatures constructed from linear elements such as vines and branches, with handmade paper integrated into these dimensional “drawings.”

In other pieces the underlying structures are wooden boxes or are built from layers of handmade paper cast

A third process results in low-relief pieces that are created from natural materials, found objects, and handmade papers collaged and stitched onto stretched canvases.
