Printmaking has a long association with the Book.

What is said through a hand gesture? What do these “spires” tell you about Tucson, or me for that matter? What is a Desert Count? Whether I use words or images alone, by working with different book forms I am able to move the viewer slowly towards a concept. Several years ago I began to make Artist’s Books. I love that Artist’s Books are sculptural and also designed to be held. These three books represent themes I have explored over the years: Connection to Home; Communication; The Sonoran Desert and all who call this desert home.
