I started making one-of-a-kind artist books in the 1970's and 1980's using found materials & objects, staples, scotch tape, glue & original drawings, xeroxes & photographs. The books always contained language as well as imagery made with handwriting, rubber stamps & found texts. When my parents were moving out of my childhood home, I found a treasure trove of childhood drawings, cards, illustrated poetry & paintings which all were created with similar materials as the artwork I was creating as a young artist. In art school, teachers told me to stop using words on my canvases, but even then, I knew I was most interested in narrative art-- way ahead of my time. I've always walked my own symbolic & literal path in the arts, more interested in creating things of beauty which also have deep meaning and symbolism which will resonate with the viewer.
