Secrets of the Burn, 2004

I am happy to announce my inclusion in the recent article "Book Artists Who Make Their Own Paper: Peter Thomas, Mary Ellen Long, and Lisa Beth Robinson". The article by Deborah Kogan appears in the Winter 2010 issue of Ampersand, a quarterly journal of the Pacific Center for the Book Arts, San Francisco, California. The four page inclusion covers how I discovered book arts, my rituals of paper in the landscape and other projects that use handmade paper, how I learned to make paper, the characteristics of the paper made for my book works, and the influence of handmade paper on the book works produced. The making of "Secrets of the Burn" illustrated above is also included. Issues of Ampersand are available for purchase online at Green Chair Press. (see link)
