Story
Tagline
Photographer and Pop-up Book Artist
Introduction

I make one-of-a-kind collapsible artist’s books that combine my photography with pop-up paper engineering.  Pop-up and flap books originally illustrated ideas about astronomy, fortune telling, navigation, anatomy of the body and other scientific principles.  This history prompted me to construct my own books reflecting ideas on how our selves relate to society today. 

My pop-ups are a way for me to speak, mediate, express, delight and inform. Constructing pop-ups allows me to combine intuitive design and technical acuity with my love of traveling as I try to understand the world around me. With pop-up books I want to eliminate the boundaries between book, installation, photography, craft and sculpture.
