Photography and Pop-ups
......................................................................................................................................................................................................................
 I began and finished my first series of 21 pop-up books shortly after 
finishing graduate school; they have become a sort of travelogue, as 
they were created at artist residencies around the country.

The books have pull-tabs, rotating disks, and foldouts - all essential 
elements of a standard children's pop-up book. They measure 16x24" open,
 and are bound with green and black iris cloth.  The titles are heat 
foiled with copper letters and numbers to mimic volumes of an 
encyclopedia. Special thanks to the Alden B. Dow Center for Creativity, 
the Millay Colony, Visual Studies Workshop, Bemis Center for 
Contemporary Art, and the Kimmel Nelson Harding Center for the Arts.
