Artist Statement -

I expand on the time-honored medium of paper to find new forms of expression through complex paper folding. The discovery of Chinese 'Zhe Zhi' modular paper folding was a shared cultural experience taught to me by one of my students. Working in this modular paper medium allows me to create abstract direct sculpture. My style reveals the dynamic lines of various organic forms. Natural forms reflect my Florida environment and allow me to explore their architecture, as well as their hidden mathematical beauty. My direct sculptures may have as many as 6500 pieces of folded archival color paper, bonded with glue. Creating abstract direct sculpture from flat paper is a revealing challenge and fulfills my need to share the wonder of my world.
