I create unique one of kind open spine construction hand made books/journals using fine quality beautiful handmade paper (& fabrics) for the covers and end papers. I use linen hinge tape inside the spines, acid free binder's board (cut to size & sanded) for the covers & spine pieces, good quality writing paper for the book block, & I hand sew them with linen thread & ribbon or sinew. I also incorporate found objects, geocentric designs in paper, vintage postcards or photos as a part of the book cover by gluing or sewing them into place. The hand made books that I make are a wonderful expression of how color, design, papers & reclaimed items can be made into a tangible touchable work of art, that can be completed by the writer or artist who chooses the journal for their very own.

Using donated and recycled children's books, magazines and fine papers, self-taught artist Emily Lavalier creates high-density collage artwork in Minneapolis, MN. Each original contains hundreds, if not thousands, of pieces of paper, and take anywhere from 150 to 500 hours to complete. The originals begin as hand-drawn illustrations and seem to grow as layers are added. Hidden details are usually found throughout, and each original is is full of texture- both from the layers of paper and the added embellishments, string, and beads.

She has been cutting paper for about 7 years and started working as a full time artist after retiring from teaching science.

Andrea uses cut paper to create nature scenes that explore the interactions of plants, animals, and humans in the urban landscape. Each design is cut from one piece of paper using an x-acto knife. Sometimes multiple layers of colored paper are used to enhance the design.
