Artist Books

Folding, cutting, printing, stitching – all of these have been entry points for me into the artist book form. I feel fortunate to have studied with highly skilled book artists like Bonnie Stahlecker and Cerese Vaden and to pass along what I have learned, and what I keep learning, to my own undergraduate students. Below is a selection of some recent books:
