Connections and the space between are themes in my work. The tension that is created when object are close yet do not touch intrigues me. As I push tension in separation, I’m also searching for connections. In my work, lines are like characters in a play, weaving through the story, my composition.
Paper is my medium. I strive to be sensitive to it's authenticity, allowing it to become what it wants to be.
