These works represent elements of the Kimono.  Revising historical elements of Kimono designs develops shapes and motifs in this series.  Different materials such as metal, paper and other mixed media are used to establish surface structure and balance on a single plane.  The process also creates a two-dimensional quality for the surface plane.  The intent is to find a harmonious and balanced  state using soft and hard materials, metal, paper and paint.

Selected works from current work.
