welcome world and save the date

Welcome. I have begun this blog to talk about a sense of place in artist books. I am investigating four broad areas, using the idea of an artist book as ones own geography of personal place. I hope you will constructively contribute to the conversation.

Follow the five areas of my thoughts, on five days of discussion, to use each day as a page for the area of place I’d like to talk about. I’m looking for a creative critique to move us forward, investigate, discover and apply our thoughts.

About sense of place in artist books

I am an artist. I find the ephemeral place in my art conjured up through practice. I sift through raw materials with my hopes and dreams, and ideas take form as if intended.
