Printmaking, paper art, artists' books


I’m intrigued by the once common, paper objects of everyday life, particularly the letter and the miniature paper theater. These objects reached their zenith in the Golden Ages of book illustration and letter writing. Once our lives were full of paper objects and the letter was an important object – enfolding not just news but the drama of life.
