Creating Textile Books

Smithsonian National Museum of African Art

Live drawing on linoleum block at Warren M. Robbins Library
Smithsonian Libraries,  October 2016

The most exciting part is using the wonderful library at the Smithsonian National Museum of African Art and interacting with scholars.

There is nothing more grounding than walking through clouds.
