Brooklyn Public Library, Part II

As a book artist and printmaker
one of the best places to 
display one-of-a-kind
and limited edition books
is the library

gave a wonderful reception.
I was invited to talk about
my printmaking process
and why book arts is
my primary 
visual medium.


Book arts allows me to 
write poetry,
draw, illustrate,
and incorporate various
printmaking techniques
 (silkscreen, lithography, 
woodcuts, and linocuts)
and paint (the covers).


The finished books
are complete and offer
 interesting visual narratives.



My exhibit had over 50 handmade books
in addition to my sketches, diaries, and journals.

Walking through Clouds

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