Where are you from originally and where do you live now? I was born in California and I like to think that is where I am from, but honestly my family moved when i was young. I moved a few times while I was growing up and then when i was on my own, well, I've lived all over. Right now I have been living close to some of my family in Cedar Rapids, Ia, but I don't feel this is the end of the line by any means. How did you get your start as an artist? There are...

Where are you from originally and where do you live now? New York! Yes, I was born and raised in NY -- grew up in a Westchester suburb just outside of NYC and have called NYC my home for the past 10 years or so.

Went to art school in Arnhem, and when I graduated I left for Amsterdam were I live and work now with my two daughters and a black cat. How did you get your start as an artist? In the eighties I moved to Eindhoven, a city nearby. I was fascinated...

You attended the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. When you were in art school were you already making books? In my second semester at SAIC, I made a simple hardbound book covered in a bulky quilted fabric with little knowledge regarding proper book construction. It might be the worst book I’ve ever made, but my interest was sparked. I took all of the artists’ books courses offered, 3 in total. I began to develop a better understanding of book construction and came to realize there are more ways than one to make a book. The Cat in Nature...
