I began working with paper when I was an honorary cub scout in my brother’s troop. I got hooked on sculpting after searching for a fictional piece by Michael Angelo from the book "From the Mixed-up Files of Basil E. Frankweiler" by E. L. Kongisburg.
I sculpt with shredded office paper that I make back to pulp and any other recycled materials that I can keep out of the landfill. My sculptures air dry and I paint with recycled house paints. My medium is unique; I use some techniques from clay sculpting but mostly techniques that I have developed myself depending on the piece I’m working on.
Through my subjects I get to express my love for nature, my rage against injustice or just a crazy image in my head!
