Books

About 14 years ago I discovered handmade paper and handmade books and was able to incorporate both into my weaving background.

I use my books as vessels to weave my thoughts, through paper, into another form. Sometimes I will use no text but let the work speak for itself. My pieces are always personal and many take months to leave the relative security of my soul and venture out into the world.
