Greg Sanks' Profile
I'm an environmental engineer working in the aerospace industry. I took up some crafts for my sanity and discovered that I liked doing everything(which, by the way, no one can afford!). I have no talent and can't draw a stick figure without assistance so I'm condemned to building things out of other things that I find.
I'm learning how to do bookbinding and make altered books at the moment. I've done wall sculpture, flat mount and framed textured abstract hanging art, flower and plant arrangement, lots of woodworking and assemblage as well as some nifty shadow boxes. I collect old books, antiques, little boxes of high character, and decorative, textured, and handmade papers for my artwork. Oh, and leather working (badly) too.
Currently, I'm learning how to age papers and book materials for my altered books and then take them to the next step…
