My artist books juxtapose and fuse verbal and visual impressions that represent a special place or time of my experience. Their lack of interior pages aim to focus on the artist book as contemplative object rather than narrative.

Travel Series (2016) is the beginning of a series of artist books that will combine images and words that I collect from travels, each is dedicated to a different city. The words in these are becoming more fully integrated with and as a part of the images. The letters' shapes take on color and form occupying space to enhance the face value of sayings collected.
