I find inspiration in humble materials and the challenge of making nothing into something. Currently, my work involves sculpting different types of chicken wire and paper into hanging mobiles that can be illuminated or not. I am constantly exploring the limitations of the materials, and am motivated to make each piece unique. The pieces can be delicate or bold depending on the three-dimensional forms and the color and opacity of the paper. I am inspired by the work of Ruth Asawa and Lee Bontecou.
