Thank you for visiting my shop. The hand bound journals, photo albums and and memory mini books I make are done to preserve memories. I strive to produce artistic designs in which you can keep family history alive through your journal entries and photos. I use meticulous design and construction with quality papers, marbled and distinctive patterns with harmonious hues.

Each hand bound wood covered book is meticulously sanded, and finished. My book board journals and hand mounted photobooks are are covered in linen and silk. Mini albums are themed and embellished with coordinating accessories.

My collages utilize a variety of mixed media techniques including encaustic wax. I admittedly have a slant towed inspirational folk art themes.

My paper designed tags, banners and cards frequently are taken from my love of vintage styles and incorporate vintage buttons, lace trims, ephemera, and images from period post cards and cabinet cards.

About

PRACTICING A NEW GENRA OF ART

I have long been a Francophile and aspire to be fluent in French. I have had the pleasure of traveling to France many times. I was attracted to a collage book by the artist Anna Corba, loving her French vintage style. I have since had the pleasure of taking her art seminars in France over the past two years. Admittedly, her artistic style is an influence on my creations.
The expression of my art comes from a love of times past. I try to use vintage materials where possible and to impart a vintage patina to the finished piece through encaustic wax. I love to use vintage French book pages, vintage sheet music and passementerie in my collages. On my sojourns I bring back vintage books, letters and postcrds that you will find woven into my creations.
The hand-bound blank journals are the creation of my husband Joseph. While living in MN we belonged to the MN Center for Book Arts, where we have taken classes in book binding, paper making and marbling paper. My husband hand finishes the wood, hand tears paper and hand stitches in the tradition of days of yore.
I was proud to have been published in the Summer, 2012 issue of Creating Vintage Charm Magazine. Here you can see my banner "Victorian Bathing Beauties"
It is my fervent desire to bring to you the highest of quality workmanship with the best of quality materials. Hoping that you enjoy every piece or that your gift brings pleasure to your recipient.

Thank you for your patronage. A general note with regard to shipping. I package a single 5"x7' collage in an insulated shipping envelope. Two 5"x7" collages will fit in a US postal set price box. Larger pieces will consequently cost more for shipping as they will require a larger box. The cones need to be shipped a box to protect their shape. Books can be shipped for book rate. I strive to protect my work in shipping as a lot of pride goes into each piece.
I am excited to share my work with you and I want it to grace your home or be a delightful gift. Thank you, Valerie
