Paper is the medium that I choose to work with currently, using mathematical, geometric, and natural patterns, transformed through paper by means of measuring, cutting, scoring, folding, and pleating, I am also testing a range of fabric, lighting, and shadows. I feel that paper has a life of its own, each fold made leads onto the next, seemingly directing itself, I must be careful not to push too far it will snap.

It is important in my work to try and recreate some form of movement, sometimes introducing a light source. My research leads me to look at all techniques of measuring, cutting, folding, and pleating investigating what can be achieved.
