“My work is about the threads that connect us: connections to the land, to our past, and to each other. In divided times these are fibers that link us together. As we struggle with why our neighbor voted this way, why someone we love is hated, we remember that we all want the same outcome; prosperity, happiness, success, longevity. Not just for individuals but our communities, our county, our world.
“I am a printmaker and book artist. I create small edition books and one of a kind works of art, combining text, imagery, and nontraditional housing. Everything is comfortable to the hand, a pleasure to the eye and a sense of heart for the soul. In making artist books, I am able to use the intimacy, flexibility, the movement thru time, and inter-activeness of the book structure.
“A book held in one’s hands creates an intimate bond with the viewer. It allows the content to be integrated with their past and their present, creating that “Ah, hah!” moment, leading to a new understanding, new perception, new experience — creating something that will add to the perception of being connected to those around them.”
