About The Artist



Artist Statement

I sometimes wonder if I was born with a library card in my hand; my earliest and fondest memories involve libraries. As an artist, I’m drawn to working with collage, handmade paper, and artists books. I knew I had a unique opportunity to merge these passions when I was offered boxes of vintage catalog cards from my local public library.  That day was the beginning of a multi-year project, Ex Libris: Found Art From a Public Library, an exhibition inspired by – and created from – library catalog cards.
