I began making paper and the ensuing art work when I was unable to use a blow torch for my soft sculpture. I love to cook so making the paper is very satisfying.
The shaping and assemblage were new challenges. That was good for my process, I work better when fully immersed in piece. The titles are solitary as these were created during a lonely season of my life.
The unexpected result was a new conduit for exhibiting. Which resulted in connections to people I had not previously worked with.
“The titles reflect how alone I felt during this time in my life.”
