  1. Your books are excellent. Quite interesting and inspirational. I Have a question: how do you glue the pages together so that they are uniform on all sides. I’m working on my first book and keeping the pages neatly glued is my only challenge so far.

  2. I truly love your collage and mosaic approach to the books and am particularly drawn to several. May I ask how you secure the many book pages that serve as a substrate? And how did you begin showing your pieces. Was the web presence first or gallery showings? I’m curious how a true artist “gets known” to the world. I wouldn’t know how to approach the market with my own tissue paper wall hangings (a variety of mediums are sprayed, painted and embellished). Thank you for your time.
