My work is rooted in process and the investigation of structure. The wall mounted sculptures reference calligraphy, hives, and unearthed treasures. I know the metal skeleton is fully realized when I recognize a balance between buoyancy and weight. I am drawn to the tension between the raw metal and the delicate elements; fragile yet strong. Using fibers and paper is significant to my work as it call upon my roots as a printmaker.
