Apparently, I’m making altered books about my family right now. Making Things Grow is about my younger sister, Katie, and explores my feelings of both being a surrogate parent for her AND a big sister. There are a lot of conflicting feelings tangled up in my relationship with my sister.
Here are some pages from Making Things Grow.
Mixed Media, paint, paper, ink, colored pencil, collage, rubber stamped words and hand written lettering.
At Grandma’s House, one of the first books I ever made. The images are etchings, and I did some radical (for me, at the time) handstitching as well.
