Bessie Smith Moulton
Falmouth, ME

My artist books explore a wide range of themes...many inspired by my travels. In some way they all investigate my main interest in origins: of words, religions, colors, foodways and many other things we often take for granted. Unlike many artistsą books, which have immediate impact on the viewer, my books ask to be read and pondered. They are intended to illuminate and inform but also to invite the reader into a greater mystery. My education, background and experiences have led me to this ideal medium for personal expression.
