The light and weather greatly affected my work as I work with translucent materials and light. The space of my studio became an installation unto itself. I responded to the landscape, architecture and outdoor sculpture — this translating of the physical environment into book art, paper and mixed media sculpture has continued in my work. I began a practice at Djerassi of writing down thoughts, lists, tasks and ideas upon waking up. This has given more shape to my daily artistic routine.” Above: Table Top Djerassi (tunnel book detail), 2015, handmade paper, slate, ink, wire mesh Right: Vortices, 2015, installation, sculpture, prints, artists’ books.
