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.
Many of my artists books can be found in the collections of museums and public and university libraries. Click to see a complete list of these COLLECTIONS. Some of my artist's books have been adapted and published in trade paperback versions by RED PARROT PRESS.
