Drawing & 2D Work
hundreds of shrinky dinks, paper, found + handmade objects are painted, layered and made into magnets to allow the viewer to create their own compositions on a series of metal panels. i really enjoyed creating these tiny little worlds. this project began in 2009 and of course, now i can not stop making playful magnetic environments.
