Artist Books & Book Making

Working with books as an art medium is stimulating and exciting. For almost four decades, I have been making artist’s books of different styles: I have been drawn to women’s experiences, both in the political and personal spheres. Playing with humour and a light-hearted visual aesthetic, I have focussed on bringing more serious issues to light—exploring both feminist and environmental issues.

My love of artists’ books is something that I take great joy in sharing, both in the exhibitions of my own works as well as passing on my knowledge and experience to others. I teach a variety of workshops for different styles of books, offering opportunities for people of all ages and abilities to express their creativity. I do my best to foster an imaginative, judgement-free space in which to work, always remaining flexible and accepting no matter where my students' minds take us. Artist’s books have captured my interest and attention for many years, as I hope they will yours.
