Selected Works- Sculpture

Paper ephemera is my raw sculpting material of choice. My sculptures deal with issues of memory and change through time so I feel it is only appropriate to use the physical remains of the day. I like how receipts, junk mail and other paper bits of the everyday (made mostly from dead plant material) can be chewed up and transformed into new objects that take on a life of their own.
