artist's statement

My passion for the book began in 1980 while a student of typography. I was completely captivated after my first foray into printing and binding an artist’s book. For many years I continued with the book format, simultaneously making traditional and non-traditional books. Since the beginning, I have always thought of books as three-dimensional objects with multiple layers, both physically and conceptually. For the past several years my artwork has undergone a transformation from the traditional book format to book-like objects to the current wall sculptures. However, as much as I like the physical object, be it a book or sculpture piece, it is the content behind the work that drives me to create the artwork.
