Experiments in the Studio

I've been in the studio working hard on a new series, 365.  I look forward to exhibiting a few of these unique works during my book art demonstration at Baltimore Public Library, Parkville Branch in October.

FRIENDS
Who what is a friend?  
This is the third mini booklet inspired by inspirational sayings from my grandparents and proverbs from around the world.

Baltimore: Handcrafted with Love

This work was inspired by my first grade teacher, Ms. Bonnie Siegel.  All the wonderful lessons I learned back then are still with me today, especially perseverance.  I admire all elementary school teachers, whose lessons and influence on our lives last decades.
Note about this handmade paper: the quality of water in Baltimore is excellent, with a pH of 7.   This pH level is great for making sturdy, archival, and beautiful paper.  Now that I live here, I try to make all my paper.  Perfect for preserving long-lasting memories!
