My preferred medium to sculpt is with folded paper modules that are cut from sheets of 8.5″x11″ paper. One of my sculptures titled, “Opus no. 5: Corrugated Pottery” was constructed of more than 5,000 individually folded pieces of paper. This opus was recognized in the 2019 Heard Museum Guild Exhibition’s 2nd Place for sculpture.

In all my sculptures, every folded module has a prayer within it, like the cones on a jingle dress. I never sculpt when I have negative feelings, because I believe that those feelings can manifest into your work and render a piece of art as less than ideal. I draw inspiration from my own experiences. From where I’ve been, where I am, and where I will be. Every opus is unique and never repeated.
