Hand-Cut Paper, Eggshell, Mica, Watercolor, Gouache, and LED Lights
Spring awakens all that has been dormant, including this little hatchling safe in a gold filled nest. I hand wove the entire nest with hundreds of strips of fine art paper, and lined it with shimmery mica flakes. The piece is lit up with one LED light strip around the edge, and a rotating color light inside the egg. The piece comes with a battery pack as well as a power cord for versatility, and is finished in a solid maple frame.
Her sculptural illustrations are patterned from detailed drawings, hand-cut, and then layered to create various depths depending on the size of the piece. The layers are then painted in watercolor and gouache, and are often back lit with LED lights.
