In my work I try to capture the luscious beauty, color, rich detail, and complexity of form that I see in nature and add my own sense of fantasy.
I am an artist working from my home studio in West Hartford, Connecticut. My background is in design and illustration, though I started out as a printmaker at the Rhode Island School of Design. Perhaps that was where
my love for paper began.
Paper is my medium, a humble and ubiquitous material that I love to collect, create, and work with.
My technique involves cutting designs out of paper, then curling, folding, and forming them to create layered bas reliefs or fully 3 dimensional constructions.
In my professional work I am often called upon to create environments that showcase products in an interesting
and elegant way, a design challenge I enjoy.
In my personal work, like much of my commercial work,
I am inspired by nature. I am currently working on a series based on lichen.
