What would it mean to bring the forest into the studio and gallery? A literal re-framing of nature, or a recontextualization into man-made vessels. Think terrariums. Think museum specimens. I've been collecting antique boxes, canning jars, bell jars, old books, frames. I've been walking in the forest and photographing the tiny things I find there. Now I'm using machine quilting, hand embroidery and beading on papers, plus developing new paper sculpture techniques, and re-creating tiny bits of the forest in my studio.
