Books are one of the most spacious mediums with which to work. Each page offers its own blank canvas that, collectively, can become a conceptually grounded experiment in aesthetics. Memory, and its associations to our present lives, often determines our future paths. My books convey special tribute to our relationship to home and one another. Book works, and books generally, are a symbol of an artist’s mental/emotional and creative life. While discovery is essential to a well-crafted conceptual work, I also never lose sight of my enjoyment of printing and making books.
