My artist books pair storytelling with the architectural form of the book. Both elements influence each other and enhance the visual narrative.
For story inspiration I look to history. I enjoy giving voice to characters who are less known , overlooked, or even forgotten. Other stories are inspired by myth and culture. Sometimes I use the words of others, but frequently I write my own texts.
In my exploration of physical book structures, I am drawn to unusual historical styles, such as the Medieval girdle book, intended to hang from a traveler's belt. I am fascinated by modern structures featuring movement and light. Sometimes I even explore sound.
