artist  statement

 

My artist books portray the reality of change rather than a romanticized idea of the past, displaying the economic, technological, and social changes that reshape urban and rural landscapes.

 My works record an environment in various states of abandonment and deterioration.  The majority of my imagery is from my own photographs, as well as some vintage ephemera. 

Computer software is used to alter and manipulate the images, which are combined with various book structures to create a harmonious whole.

The books are inkjet printed, hand cut, and hand-assembled using many traditional and nontraditional bookmaking techniques.
