Why aren't there nine or ten stars? Why? Because this item exceeds that ranking. I can't begin to describe how beautiful this book sculpture is and how I would not hesitate to purchase it again and again. The communication between the artist and myself was clear, concise, and timely. The delicate nature of the item was more than securely wrapped and shipped - not even the careless handling by my family of the box ruffled a single word of the pages. I cannot wait to completely rearrange my library around this exquisite piece. Thank you for being so talented!
Stories coming to life.
After much poking and prodding from my well meaning family, I finally decided to get serious about my work. I've always drawn, and that's how it started. Most of my drawing sales are commissioned portraits.
In March of 2012 I started book sculpting. I stumbled upon a box of used books at a second-hand shop. Having a soft spot for books, I couldn't pass them up. One book had been crushed in the bottom of the box. Not thinking, I started folding the bent pages to form a design. It was simple, but I really like it. I made a few more, each a little more complicated than the last. At the urging of friends, I posted them on an artist's community website. The people there thought they were interesting and referred me to other book sculptures. It was then that I realized what a valid art form this could be. I had mixed feelings about continuing. Then, I started thinking about sculpting as a way to give a book a new life, up-cycle, and create a pretty awesome looking piece of art all at the same time. Thus, my book sculpting career began. I've never felt so creative before, and I'm loving every second of starting my artistic career.
I feel that art should be personal. A hundred people may own the same mass produced picture and it may be pretty, but does it mean anything to you? Whether it's a drawing or an sculpture, I want my work to be personal for my buyer. I want to help you tell your story.
