About The Work
The foundation of my artwork lies in the ancient Japanese paper and textile traditions of katagami and katazome. My artwork takes the stencil (katagami) and recontextualizes it by exploring the sculptural possibilities of the handcarved "stencil" in and of itself. I combine katagami carving, stitching, and metalwork as I explore these ancient traditions.
