Because of the massive scale of each piece a single flower can take upward of 35-80 hours to assemble from crepe paper. She shares via her artist statement:

My work in paper stems from my background as an architect, particularly my interest in how things are made and the use of repetitive elements, along with my lifelong obsession with flowers and botanical drawings. The exploration of scale plays heavily into everything I do, and the organized chaos and rhythms in nature make the heads of flowers an excellent case study for me.
