Why artist books? I am interested in the accessibility and playfulness of the art work. What is an artist book? A piece of art that can be handled, a container of surprises, a piece of art in the form of a book, a journey through pages. The books are sculptural objects that unfold in many ways and contain a story. In my work this is often informed by experiences as a beekeeper and the legends and folklore that surround these remarkable insects such as the tradition of ‘Telling the Bees’ for example. The books are printed, painted or collaged. There is an interaction between the object and the handler, an invitation to touch and unfold.
