The Los Angeles native began working with paper by accident. “I have always wanted to be a painter, but while studying illustration at Art Center, I was given assignments in both a graphic design and fashion drawing class at the same time to experiment in different mediums, one of them being paper. That was my ‘ah-ha’ moment.

 

“I quickly developed a feel for working with paper. From then on, I began experimenting with different papers, finding ways to shape, bend, and round edges on it. I wanted to manipulate paper in the least invasive way, to keep the integrity of the paper.

 

“Paper to me is a living, breathing thing that has a life of its own. I just try to redirect that energy into something that feels animated and alive.”
