Mystic Mobiles

Captivated by hanging kinetic sculptural objects, I began creating mobiles in 2002.

Starting with hand cut paper, arranging the pieces with thread, I composed geometric shapes. In 2010, I utilized a laser cutting machine that could make intricate objects that allowed for more variation. 

The desire to extend the mysticism to an online presence, I incorporated the use of .svg images to animate the mobiles. This technique gives a sense of how the mobiles move in physical form. 

Currently, I am expanding the topics of the mobiles and creating custom decorative window displays and wedding decorations.
