Artist Statement

Making things is the one thing I can’t not do. It helps me make sense of my world - the only one I can do anything about. By distilling an idea into a line I can find simplicity in the complex and discard the noise.

Paper cutting is a simple process. With a blade, I can remove everything that is unnecessary. A black and white image has elements that are either there or not there. The paper, seemingly flat, once cut acquires another dimension.

Subjects are either words or pictures, the everyday objects that illustrate my life, or thoughts, poems or ideas that encourage me to change what I can of the world from the inside out.

I write here, I sell paper cuts and prints in my shop, and if you would like to work with me, you can find out more about it here.
