Artist's books are a cross between ordinary books and scultpure or mixed media art. Sometimes they have no pages or no text, or minimal or incomplete text. Unlike artwork that is hung on a wall or displayed in a case, they may be handled, pages may be turned, and the viewer may actually "read" the artwork.
I make artist's books as unique works or in very limited editions. They are all handmade, and combine traditional and contemporary techniques, such as etching or digital inkjet printing. I design the format for each book individually to fit its content.
Some of my artist's books have been adapted and published in trade paperback versions by RED PARROT PRESS.
