My current work combines my interest in printmaking and drawing with everyday office supplies—materials discovered through working in an office environment. 

Inspired by the creative potential that exists when working within predefined conditions, I use a limited set of accessible office materials including Post-it Notes, copier paper, glue, scissors, paper cutter, and ruler to create papers that I assemble into abstract geometric images.  My constructed paper drawings emphasize layered rhythms, lines, patterns, textures, and subtle changes in spatial relationships.

My work is informed by explorations of my environment including urban places, rural landscapes, and interior spaces.
