A New Book

My main form of art expression is through collage. I use it for my collage series I do for art journaling and in this case for an artist book. I am very fortunate to have 2 amazing book arts groups here in Albuquerque where I live. One of the groups deals with a theme or topic and we make our books using that-  the book forms people choose are all their own choice. The last theme was mapping a favorite theme of mine. I wish I could show you all the groups works- truly amazing. My book is called Life States. This format is a triptych- I have lived in 3 states Iowa, Minnesota and now New Mexico. One panel for each state- within the triptych are 2 small books attached. This is loosely based on a book form of Roxanne Evans Stout's. This was hard to photograph but you can get an idea.
