in 1999 i attended my first pbi,
the paper and book intensive,
(actually only half of the session)
i took a marvelous class with
whose website i found via aimee lee.
mary ann knows books, fiber, paper, wool.
and animals.
(and probably a few other things, too!)
mary ann pushed me in some directions
but the main thing was the concept
of book/paper/textile being all of a piece
all related, all connected.
above are some of the pieces i made
with her or after her workshop
with her inspiration.

V-wherte would we be without the inspiration of other artists - they often just tip us in the right direction. B
