Artist Statement

Knowledge of book-making informs my work as a special collections professional. With an appreciation for logical sequencing, techniques, and materials, I am able to reverse engineer and effectively describe book artifacts.

Thus, my work in the book arts focuses on exploring physical properties and process. I use aesthetics associated with the book genre as a catalyst for the development of meaning and the production of decorative arts.
