This body of work explores the growth of patterns. Within nature, my inspiration
comes from the movement of geological forms and the creatures that make
nests and hives. Both naturally building layers, using repetition and addition to
create a form.
Using paper pulp medium, the progression of that growth is dictated by the

the movement of the pattern that emerges, each pattern unique.
The weightless yet durable qualities of paper pulp and its natural aesthetic,
means that placing pulp incrementally, allows me to grow organic and
unexpected patterns within a form to create a piece of light weight wearable
