I am pre-selling some of my artwork at a discounted rate in order to fund the project. In addition, every person who contributes will receive a Visitor's Center Membership card and have their names displayed on the list of supporters (or not, if you don't want it!).
If you are a lover of the desert, ghost towns, oddities, and the beautifully bizarre, this project is for you. I have items for sale at different price levels, starting at just $5.
When completed, the installation itself will be part of an MFA thesis exhibition at a gallery in Oakland California in November 2015. I promise to post updates of the progress of this project as it happens, and all sold pieces will be shipped in a timely manner after the exhibition ends in December (before the holidays, hint hint!).
Thanks so much everyone, and I hope to see you all in November!

Been forever since I last posted. I have a bunch of new work to post!
This book is an origami fold structure, digitally printed background, and letterpress text and imagery. It measures 3.5" square when closed, and 9"x29" open.
It's about a literal and figurative search for El Dorado - the legendary city and also ghost town in Nevada. Some of the writing is my own and others are sourced from old Nevada mining town books and news articles.

I've created a Go Fund Me campaign to attend the Guild of Book Workers conference this October. As a student, I'm on a tight budget and it isn't really feasible for me to go without some help. I've been researching and making medieval girdle books for the past year, and there is a seminar specifically on girdle books! I have bookmarks, zines, blank books and miniature books to give in exchange. It would really mean a lot to me. Thanks so much!

I made some miniature full-leather books this week. Unsurprisingly, they are just as big of a pain in the ass to make as bigger books! But they are fun and cute and will be making more, even tinier books soon! I'm thinking of making them into necklaces, or leaving them as is??
