I'm a book artist, poet, and printmaker.
What's a book artist you ask? It's as if an architect, poet, and printmaker walked into a bar. After a few drinks, the printmaker says, "We should collaborate together." The architect says,"Fabulous idea! I'll create the structure. Maybe a pop-up or an accordion..." "Yeah, and I'll write some poetry," says the poet. Then the printmaker chimes in, "And I'll do some images, maybe letterpress or collage."



Why am I doing Patreon? 
Book arts is a very material intensive process. In addition to paper and book cloth and collage materials, I have supplies like ink and glue and Crisco (yes, Crisco, I use it to clean the press) and a million other things that fill my clown car of a studio (you can thank my husband for the name of my dining room/studio). Plus there's fees for shows and fairs. I also have dreams of getting a new printer, computer, and studio space that is free from my toddler and outside our living space.

What'll you get?
Member-only access to videos, zines, letterpressed goods, artist's books, as well as discounts on higher-priced items.

Thanks to all who support my artistic endeavors (and for reading this far!). Book artists unite!
Tiers
Seed
$1 or more per creation
A giant, lip-smacking thank you! And a virtual high five.
Seedling
$3 or more per creation
I'll do a video of me in the studio once a month. I know it's exciting: I'll be cutting paper or letterpress printing or gluing an edition. It'll be epic!
Plant
$5 or more per creation
In addition to the video above, I'll send you mail. I know I love getting mail, and I'm thinking you probably do too. When you have that special something tucked in between all the bills and advertisements, it makes for a good mail day. So every 3 months you'll have a zine or mailart in your mailbox.
Flower bud
$10 or more per creation
In addition to everything above, once a year I will send you your very own artist's book, journal, or something I've made.
Purple flower
$25 or more per creation
In addition to everything above, you'll have access to a 10% discount on all my books over $200 and the first chance to purchase not-yet-produced books. You'll also get a letterpress book or broadside or other doodad. I'll give you a high five too, if I ever meet you in person.
