I have increasingly found myself drawn to images which so fascinated me as a child before the influences of others began to affect my way of seeing the world. I can recall playing with cardboard and other types of papers to create interior worlds for my dolls and their accessories. Reconnecting with these early discoveries has led me in a new direction, one tending toward the sculptural rather than the two-dimensional, and one in which I can use recycled and water-based materials to create art. For me as a an artist, it is an endlessly fascinating adventure to take ordinary materials and transform them into something resembling ancient forms, made of precious metals, looking centuries old, but shaped with a modern context.
