Brooklyn Public Library, Part I

Exhibiting at 
was a dream come true.


BPL allowed me
to design the display
cabinets for my exhibition.
I used 5 yards of fabric to decorate all the cabinets.
New York City
Winter 2011
snowy, wet, dreary
outside

I wanted to brighten the
space with gold and red
Silkscreened prints  drying in the studio
I silkscreened images from my 
sketchbooks and 
handmade books
on fabric.

detail of one silkscreen scroll
The images took two days 
to thoroughly dry.

The little books are made from left over paper from my larger books.
I love making tiny accordion 
visual books I call "OOKS".  
I remove the B from books 
and call them OOKS
because they are so tiny.

Walking through Clouds

I have been taking morning walks in tranquil Maryland meadows.  
There is nothing more grounding than walking through clouds.
