the spirit books
The Spirit Books are portable sanctuaries. They connect my experience of the inherent spirituality and mystery of nature with the long-standing tradition of books as testaments of faith and belief. Cradles made from branches, roots, pods, and vines hold books crafted from handmade papers. I stitch the pages to show my reverence and gratitude for the spirit of nature and its physical manifestations and to offer a contemplative experience to the viewer.
