Her artist statement:
I see no great divide between the sciences and the arts. I incorporated art into my previous career as a science educator and science informs my art practice. My work is driven by observation and obsessed with light and colour. It is about slowing the eye and seeing beauty in simple forms.
I work in low relief using identical units, arranged in predetermined sequence, to catch and colour light. When working in three dimensions these simple sequences of number and direction generate objects reminiscent of organic forms.
Like mutations in DNA, small changes in sequence lead to differences in structure. I aim to continue experimenting with paper and other materials using number and pattern to produce objects of beauty.
