I work in traditional, non-traditional and digital media. The children’s book illustrations and sample book covers, below, are an abbreviated sample of watercolor and hand-carved stamps, as well as digital media. I also work in clay, paper, collage, fabric and recycled trash. Please check back for image updates as the site technical issues are resolved.

ADVENTURES IN BOOKBINDING

I didn’t think it was possible for me to love books any more than I already did. I’ve always been an insatiable reader, writer, learner and artist. Then I started exploring the art of book-binding, and sure enough, my passion for the printed and bound book… as a body of knowledge, as an emotional experience and as a physical object of art & craft…grew.

It’s a bit like parenting; Each day, I look at my child and think, “I could not possibly love you more.” But sure enough, the next day comes, and I do.

Maybe when we find what we truly love, our hearts grow in response to it.
