Altered Book Art
Local Bay Area Arts turns to “Book Art.” Featured in the San Francisco Chronicle this award winning artist became entranced with the idea of turning books into an alternative form of art. It feels like your are repurposing discarded books. Having studied graphic arts I like to encompass some aspect of this into my work. My art begins with the conception of an idea. I use unconventional products like PVA granules to accomplish a strengthening factor that was extremely lightweight and durable. In the fashion world “couture” means something new or not done before, I like to think of my art as “couture,” something new that evokes one’s thoughts.
