My current work includes altered books and printmaking processes on paper, the paper is folded into sculptural books. The images are based on photographs from the urban environment, which is very different from the open spaces where I live. The books refer to current events and the impact on the community. In my books the layers of transfer prints reference the destruction, loss of habitat, and upheaval from natural disasters and the manmade destruction of the mortgage crisis. The book is a metaphor for the soul and allows me to cope with daily events. Layers of transfers reference images from my travels and the area around my studio.
