I love to create cast-paper sculptures encompassing highly fluid, expressive, and sensuous surface textures. In order to accomplish this goal, I literally had to develop an entirely new process of making sculpture.


This process involves using thermal tools such as soldering irons and wax needles to “hot draw” my images on the surface of insulation board (Styrofoam).  The heat generated by these tools penetrates the surface of the insulation board, establishing my “line” while also defining the surface texture.  By "hot drawing" drawing on the surface of the Styrofoam I am also creating a sunk relief, which I then use as a mold to cast a bas-relief of my "hot drawing" by packing the surface of the mold with archival cotton linter pulp.  Once the pulp dries, I gently remove  what is now a beautiful cast-paper bas-relief of my "hot drawing" from the mold.
