Amy's Beautiful Book: February 2010

This past November at the Vermont Studio Center, I had the privilege to meet a funny and talented print-maker named Amy Guadagnoli. You can see her prints and books on her website.

This series of work was done in one of her beautiful books, made of baltic-birch plywood and rives heavyweight paper. Amy's precious little book inspired me to make small drawings with colored pencil and watercolor--something I had not done since my childhood art lessons with my late grandmother, Katherine Kilgore. Inspiration also came from astrology, Carl G. Jung's Red Book, Indian art and my time here in Vermont. The book was an adventure in exploring my unconscious. Nearly every day for the month of February 2010, I worked in Amy's book.Thank you, Amy and to my teachers. This was a lot of fun.

I hope you enjoy this book. I sure did!
