I have been experimenting with tree branches in my cut paper medium for about two years. This is my largest and most complicated piece to date. I estimate that there are between 20,000 to 25,000 individual hand-cut holes in this piece. The piece measures 30x20 inches and took about two months to complete. I do not have a political message with any of my work. I simply want to create something beautiful that inspires awe in the viewer due to the design, technique, and intricacy of my work. Branches will arrive framed with UV glass and ready for display.
