My work in Letter Arts Review!

My ABC pencil portfolio in Letter Arts Review!

On Monday, I was thrilled to receive my copy of the current issue of Letter Arts Review. It's always a good day when the LAR arrives, but especially so this time: my ABC pencil portfolio, How to Be In The World, was featured in it — all 28 pages! If you follow this blog, you've read about the portfolio several times here. The final product is definitely a ship of Theseus: every single page has been redone at least once.

Although I'm understandably infatuated with those particular pages, the entire issue is an excellent one. It includes an interview with the inimitable Julie Wildman, a book project by Louise Grunewald, Anna Pinto on pastels and pochoir, and more. Get your own copy here.

(In a few weeks, I may be letting up on the exclamation points. Maybe.)

I'm honored and delighted that two of my pieces were chosen for inclusion in annual juried review issue of the Letter Arts Review. I'm in exalted company!

I've blogged about "Prairie Spring" before, here.

I have arrived … in the Letter Arts Review

The back cover of the current issue of Letter Arts Review

I'm so pleased to have been selected for inclusion in the annual juried review issue of the Letter Arts ReviewAnd to be included as a tile on the page cover (top right)!

I realize that although I have posted a process image of the piece , I never did post a final image. Here it is, shown below. I'm also honored to have "Fragment" included "Formation," a juried exhibition of the Guild of Book Workers which will travel to Minneapolis, Atlanta, Los Angeles, Boston, and Philadelphia in the coming year.

"Fragment" - poem by Amy Lowell. Paper mosaic cut from a single piece of paste-painted paper.
