I have been making books since I was a kid, and made multi-media book projects as a teenager as a way to express my longings and intense emotions of those years. I started to express emotions and feelings with the physicality of books, through their forms, bindings, paper and colors. There is a harmony in my works between perfection and imperfection. Imperfection creates individuality, and it also sparks new possibilities and perspectives in the piece.
