In 2002, I became interested in the book arts. I started combining metals with books exploring various possibilities. Above is a book-like container constructed to hold some found art pins which I had previously made.

I also began making book clasps and now I am teaching workshops in metal bookclasp design and construction to book artists. Other book related work and more information about bookclasps may be found at
