2023 is looking like a major year for paper marbling! Deeply honored to be included in these two exhibitions in New York City this winter:

Decorated Paper: A Selection of Publications in the Watson Library, on view Jan 5 - April 18 at the Met

Pattern and Flow: A Golden Age of American Decorated Paper, 1960s - 2000s at the Grolier Club, on view Jan 18- April 8


My newest artist book, Shell Pattern Necklace, was released at the 2022 New York Art Book Fair, in a variable edition of 6+1AP (each book unique). Published with Small Editions, and bound by Sarah Smith (the best bookbinder ever). 

From Your Body to the Cosmos is the zine complement to Shell Pattern Necklace, published in an edition of 300 by Small Editions. Title taken from philosopher Laura U. Marks, used with permission and gratitude. Order here

Honored to be included in the forthcoming book Pattern and Flow: A Golden Age of American Decorative Paper 1960s - 2000s, by Mindell Dubansky, published by the Metropolitan Museum of Art Watson Library and distributed by Yale University Pres. If you are interested in paper marbling, this will be a defining text on the subject! Pre-order your copy here.

I am included in BOOKS: Art, Craft and Community, published by the London Centre for Book Arts. Buy online through LCBA or at your favorite bookshop. 

I am continuing to teach Suminagashi classes online with the Center for Book Arts. Please visit the CBA site for upcoming class schedules.  

I am now teaching in person classes in acrylic marbling and Suminagashi again at the 92Y. View the current class schedule here.
