Make Believe was the culminating project in a series of work about childhood imagination. As a young girl, I carried paper ponies in my pockets. Revisiting that habit for this series, I landed on the artform of contemporary and historical cut paper. Make Believe was my first large scale paper installation, and many years later I am still fascinated with the possibilities such a simple material holds.
