I LOVE this!
Working on hand drawing these covers for my new book debuting at PIX tomorrow! Each cover is different and the book includes a tiny envelope that houses a secret message written on Nepalese Loka paper. The book is a meditation on the art of disappearing. Hope to see you there!!
Location: 10 S.19th Street in the city’s South Side neighborhood.
Hours 10-5pm then the panels begin at 7pm!

Recently I learned how to book bind with the super talented Jasdeep Khaira of Encyclopedia Destructica. Her body of work is beyond impressive and I felt honored to learn from her.
My background is in graphic design but I’m moving towards more experimental book making. I’ve experimented with printing on fabric and adding collage elements. I love the idea of creating a book that is multi dimensional.
Here is a project I did for my therapist I worked with for a number of years. During the last few months of our sessions I took photos of the sky to represent the shifting movement of my life. I love the idea of connecting the weather to your own internal experience.
Currently I’m exploring the idea of an Iceberg moving through the world and how it affects a young woman as it disappears. The concept comes from a verse in the Tao Te Ching. Will have copies of the final available at PIX!
