I graduated from the University of Wyoming with degrees in art and education. Since then I have continued my studies in painting, printing, and the book arts. I have taught workshops around the country. My award winning work is in public and private collections nationally and internationally.
Blue Horizon, 2012
A bundle of aeronautical maps made me think of a plane flying over the horizon. That inspired this book, with a sewn board binding covered in stitched indigo flax paper. The bundle of maps, tinted with an acrylic wash, became the book's 70 signatures. They are link stitched to mimic map lines across the spine. A paper airplane soars from beyond the blue horizon.
