I make book sculptures / cut books by working through a book, page by page, cutting around some of the illustrations while removing others. In this way, I build my composition using only the images found in the book.
Works are created using only the pictures that are already in the volumes and the end result is a hollowed out book with a layered composition similar to the Victorian paper theatres that were hugely popular at that time.
The books are sealed around the cut so they can no longer be opened, but are designed to be either hung on the wall or can stand by themselves as an art object.

I absolutely love my brand-new envelope-maker! It’s super efficient and lets me make them all the same size :)
Jessica! You need this thing!
Outgoing today…just one, but it’s a good one: a DVD case turned envelope.
This is such a wonderful idea!
So fucking powerful.
can’t get over this
in our modern programming of capitalism, patriarchy, and isolation, we respond more powerfully to hate and fear than to love.
Successfully took in a skirt two sizes and brought up the hem five. Not bad for a $1.00 thrift find.
