My first series of books were 'art book' size. Then the personal quality of a diary size book appealed to me. This ongoing diary series depicts thoughts reflecting on relationships, personal quandaries, travel reveries, etc. Sometimes the surfaces are merely decorative.
All books can be wall hung, set on a table or displayed on a stand. They are composed of earthenware clay, slips and acrylic paints."
