This is another image from my novel, Balanced On the Edge. It is an assemblage of small toys from the 1950's, t.v. parts, and newspaper articles about the early days of television.

Another Show!

Some of my handmade books are currently showing at the LaCrosse (Wisconsin) public library. Here is a deer looking in the window trying to read one of the books.

Happy Spring, everyone! I am lonely and need "followers"! If you like my work, I will send you a handmade collaged postcard absolutely FREE, if you become one of my "followers." I don't like that word because I don't consider myself a cult leader or movie star, and in fact I do not like being followed. But DO drop me a line, please, and I promise I will send you a postcard in return.

This book is called "The Earth is a Garden." It is made of sticks, tissue paper, dried leaves and flowers, feathers, yarn, and a ceremonial photograph from 1910. Its contents poetically describe my approach to gardening. The book stand is made from sticks, poppy pods, and shells. The entire structure is very fragile, as is our planet.

This is a book in the belly of a man made of boxes and collaged with old newspapers and electrical parts.
