Artist Books & Journals

Butterfly Book


Black Journal and Red Journal evolved over several years. I worked (played?) intuitively, improvisationally, my intention being to discover what my own artistic voice is.

Red Journal

Black Journal

The South Padre (Island) Journal began as blank pages of arches textwove paper gathered in an unbound single section. I had brought derwent watercolor pencils and micron pens to the beach and decided I wanted to draw a hibiscus flower. I plucked a flower, parked myself at my mother-in-law’s large dining room table which faces the beach, and started to draw. I completed the rest of the section over the course of several months, and added two more sections as well. It is stitched and waiting to be bound!
