I will be presenting covered boxed and handbound artist books at INLIQUID art + design's fabulous annual block party-style event, Art For The Cash Poor (AFTCP). Created specifically for the event, all my pieces are one-of-a-kind, and have a price cap of $199 and below.

None of the boxes are pre-fabricated; all the structures are handmade. Using the Japanese decorative paper methods, Itajime Shibori and Suminagashi, I hand dyed kozo and gampi papers to cover the boxes and books. I then selected pre-existing watercolors or prints from my archives, artworks that are not castoffs but haven’t any specific uses, to complete the final pieces.
