Insect Books

Painted Lady
Insects are a curious class of creature. My passions for repurposing materials and using layered printmaking processes have merged in a series of unique handmade books featuring found objects and pamphlet stitched pages. Papers are covered with a calligraphy of screen print and transfer print processes on altered book pages, often discarded books from the science department. Focusing on the small details in the environment allows me to experiment with new book forms as I contemplate evolution and climate change. Our survival is linked to the fate of insects; we need bugs to eat pests, to recycle nutrients, and to maintain our soils.
