Cutting, folding and printing on paper.

I find that something intriguing and original happens when I cut into paper to create forms and images, treating the negative space as an element of the overall language. To me, the simple relationship between positive and negative forms expresses my vision and thinking.

Despite working with a single colour and layer, a dimensional, colourful world emerges, only one where the viewer becomes the participant in each work’s completion. By leaving out elements, we are invited to fill in what we expect to see and feel, and our imagination becomes more active.
