ARTIST STATEMENT

Traditional paper quilling is a crafting technique that has been around since the Renaissance, it utilizes strips of folded, curled, and rolled paper that are glued to a substrate. In my work I remove that substrate and glue the quilled strips of paper to each other relying on the structural potential of quilling.  I see a strong connection between my quilling practice and the more traditional fiber arts of lace, macrame and weaving.
