Artist Statement:
I am drawn to paper sculpture because of the immediacy of the medium which allows me to sketch my ideas straight into 3D form. I find this captures movement and spontaneity which adds a spirit to the piece.mTesting the limitations of paper encourages me to explore the simple lines of gestural forms. Forming figures out of simple shapes is both a challenge and a pleasure. My subjects are mostly whimsical story moments which I hope raise a smile in the viewer. All pieces are made with craft paper and hot glue.
