Tell us about one of your projects.
This piece (above) is a part of a recent collection for an exposition I had at Firm Art Lab. At 120×80 cm, it represents a nest of birds geometrically nested in foliage. It is made of 5mm thick wood pieces and was designed in vector format in Adobe Illustrator and then cut from a large piece of plywood. There was a lot of time spent using the tools to make it just right and I was helped by the use of technology.
