My process begins with looking over the many sketches I have drawn out on paper and thinking about what I want the piece to reflect. Even as I am drawing, my mind is thinking about connections between myself, people, nature and the world.

Copper is itself is a very conductive metal used in communication.
Since my work is all about connection it is the perfect material to work with to tell my stories.
