Description

As a bookbinding artist, my work falls somewhere between the traditional definition of art and craft.  My work, though functional in form, is defined by its tactile and sculptural presence.  I work with each piece as a sculpture – investing time and consideration into materials and process.  To me, books represent archives – not only of the personal, but keeping record of a specific point in time and place.  This thinking is reflected in my material choices, informed by a sense of place/relation to my surroundings.  Gathering what is around me – often overlooked resources – feels like an act of preservation in a fast-changing environment where much goes to waste.  I collect objects/resources that feel precious, unique. Transforming foraged material into sculptural books signifies the value of the object and in the gesture of its’ functional form – it’s unfinished story.

The cedar log used for this book were found on a hike on one of my favourite Manitoba hiking trails.
