Painted Books
2010-2016

These little books began as gifts for friends and family. They are created as paintings on paper that are 2.125” x 15.” The paintings are then scored, accordion folded and bound. I intend to expand on this project with larger books. There is something lovely about turning a painting into a narrative. There were originally 13 books, but I keep making them, so who knows how many will be out there.
