I am based on the Clyde shore on the West coast and my background in illustration for children’s magazines and the greeting card market has developed into my current exploration of paper as a fine art medium. While the paper has limitations, the possibilities within this are endless. I now see people and situations in terms of sculpted paper and aim to surprise the viewer with this different perspective on everyday events. The paper sculptures involve cutting, curling, bending, burning and generally manipulating the paper to create highly textured, 3 dimensional effects. I am interested in subjects that allow the inclusion of some extended meaning beyond the pictorial and try to draw the viewer in to my world made of paper.
