Patterns of Travel

  • This Artist Book was created for my parents as a thank you.  It is because of them that I grew up in Germany, an amazing opportunity that shaped who I am as a person and artist. The ability to travel while living in Europe gave me an amazing cultural education that has inspired my art for the longest time. I wanted to encapsulate these experiences in patterns and motifs that illustrate different places, objects, and events that I have gained inspiration from.
    The box is handmade out of wood and has ties on both sides to keep it closed.  Inside is an accordian bound book. It is all traditionally done in multiple mediums.
