  • "I work with the book. Within the book, an infinitely complex array of materials and techniques come together and combine with a history as rich and diverse as we who create and use it. I often refer to the book in its totality as Alchemy. I work with traditional bookbinding methods, often modifying or developing new techniques as each project unfolds, depending on how I feel the text would best be served by a particular binding. Recent work has led me to create art with up-cycled materials, collage, mixed media or creatively repurposed materials. The multi-dimensional, multi-textual book sculptures reflect my all-encompasing fascination with the book as art object."
