The wonderful Roxanne Evans Stout from River Garden Studio and I have collaborated together on a number of projects. In 2008 Evidence of Autumn was born. We each created handmade books which we traded back and forth, completing the pages based on the theme of Autumn. My book is pictured below.
The experience was an absolute pleasure and I treasure this book everyday. Our styles blended together so well and the theme resonated with both of us. So much so, in fact, that we decided to do it again, still focusing on Autumn as the theme. And in 2010 The Winds of Change was born. We again each created a handmade book we passed cross country, working on pages in both books. It has been fascinating to see how both of our styles have evolved and yet still seamlessly blend. You can see my newest book below.
With both of us being so excited about our collaborations, we wanted to share them with you. And today we are both thrilled to announce that our joint project has led to a self-published book...The Winds of Change.
This book showcases our artwork from both collaborations as well as other, related pieces. Also included are words that we each have written that were inspired by each other's artwork.
You can see a preview of the book and purchase it here. Soon it will also be available in my Etsy shop.
Thanks Roxanne for everything. I am so happy that our collaboration continues!
