Artist Statement

My lifelong interest in geometric shapes, origami, and tessellations, as well as my love of color and fascination with glass, has come through in my mosaic work, and now also in my beaded glass sculptures. The last couple of years I have been deeply immersed in learning new fabrication techniques that will transform my 2D ideas into the sphere of 3D.

My beaded sculptures are entirely made up of individual hand sewn geometric shapes. While working with the glass beads, I am constantly trying to push the boundaries of this material and am fascinated by the structures that emerge.
