"USB Night lily" replaces petals with USB connectors and flower buds with ear buds. Part of the Morphing Technology series, this paper-cut depicts the attractive yet invasive Day Lily. The title also refers to the black background, making the paper stand out. The piece is presented in a solid-wood frame with cherry stain and double white mat.
I earned a BA in art at Lawrence University in Appleton, WI, and an MFA from University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2007. For two years I taught foundations art at Carthage College in Kenosha, WI, while working on public art in Madison and Milwaukee. I moved to Irvine, CA in 2010, where I worked as a full time artist and member of Orange County Center for Contemporary Art. I currently live in the DC area and teach at Arlington Arts Center and US Arts Center. I am VP of Membership for the Guild of American Papercutters and founder of Greater Westover Studio Tour. My work has appeared in over ninety solo and group exhibits throughout the country.
