"With this new series of layered paper images I’m using the photograph as a starting point and integrating both thread and wire into the layers. The leaf is a repeated outline or echo and is juxtaposed with real leaves from trees. The “book leaves” images weave together old German texts and real leaves coated with paint and wax and wrapped with wire."
