STATEMENT: Return is part of a series that places imaginary paper landscape cutouts in front of the sunrise and sunset. I am interested in the fragility of the human experience and the images echo this through the use of delicate materials. The scenes are unlikely, whimsical and transient and are influenced by traditional paper cutting techniques and botanical forms.
