inspired by a diagram...

reclaimed glossy magazine pages, PVA, 
extreme patience in folding, pleating, positioning, documenting, while enjoying the process to no end!

a shadow box...

Lavender from my garden, a vintage book folded, a flower made from reclaimed old book pages, heart shaped stones found on a beach during summers while visiting my homeland, Greece.
My mother's presence is always felt, especially in places I wish she had seen.
In my thoughts and heart she is always there, and in this shadow box her face at a young age appears as a reminder of her love for me.

World Book Day!

As a Book Arts practitioner as well as a person who loves all kinds of books, I am observing this World Book Day by sharing one of my "keepsakes" series composition, expressing my love not only for book content, but also for book form and all its derivatives...
Happy World Book Day!

*According to UNESCO's announcement, April 23 was chosen as a symbolic date for world literature. On April 23, 1616 Cervantes, Shakespeare and Inca Garcilaso de la Vega all died. It is also the date of birth or death of other prominent authors, among them: Maurice Druon, Haldor K.Laxness, Vladimir Nabokov, Josep Pla and Manuel Mejía Vallejo.

fully bloomed...

Creating this structure felt very similar to draping fabric around a mannequin/creating a garment! My fashion design past came alive, the spinning sensation while waiting for the show to start,  the models to enter, the collection to become alive for that short time of dreamy floating eternity...

"fully bloomed"
is a paper sculpture composed by a variety of traditional printing methods monotypes as well as computer generated patterns and imagery on coffee filters, draped, layered and incorporated into a folded reclaimed book.
