books – handmade: untitled (the dresses book)

When I began printing color photographs in 1996, what I’d loved about painting started to manifest in the textures of photographs (but it wasn’t yet tactile enough). In order to remedy the lack of tactility, I started making books; the dresses book was the second. The box is 11″ diameter x 4″ high; the book is 6.5″x5.5″x4″. If completely unfolded, the book spans 16-17′. Materials: 11 color photographs, sewing patterns, vellum, handmade paper, hat pins, cloth, thread, wood, ribbon, and a found antique hat box

books – handmade: untitled (book of hours)

The first edition of this book was made for a charity art auction for a breast cancer survivor organization in Chicago. I created this one, a second edition, for exhibition in 2000. Box size is 10.5″x7.5″x3.5″, book is 8″x5.5″. Materials: 11 distressed silver gelatin prints, handmade paper, ink (used with handmade stamps), canvas, gesso, thread, ribbon and wood

random things made: Beckett and Blue Box Girl boxes

I made more than a dozen Beckett and Blue Box Girl objects somewhere around 2000-2001. These are the three that remain. All are a combination of found objects and assorted mixed media materials.
