"This is so very beautiful. I love the dimensionality of the covers. I'm assuming there is a form/armature on which the leather is stretched. Would you mind describing how that is accomplished? You can email me directly, if you wish…"

For me, art is like a science experiment. I create a problem for myself out of curiosity then set about solving it through trial and error using my knowledge of form and balance.

I gather my inspiration by combing through antique and discount stores. I don't seek out specific items. Instead, I dissect everything I see into its component parts and find those that fit my ideas or inspire new ones. Just like each answer gives birth to new questions, so do my creations spawn new ideas for my next project.

My books are the result of my fascination with strange objects and my love of the book form. The smell and sound of a book fill me with a certain calming satisfaction and the mystery of a secret place I always wanted to be. I combine the Ethiopian style bookbinding technique with the spontaneity of assemblage. The result is an object that comes from that hideaway, that secret cubbyhole that my inner self still longs to visit.

What are the adornments of dictators, despots, and the plain delusional? What do they need in order to let their real personalities shine through? What tools do tyrants have to show that they are in charge? See for yourself!
