Who am I? For $ale Art Work My Books Home
Cover   The books I am creating now aren’t the traditional books I wrote and published in my former life as a professional writer. Now, I am creating Hankie Stories, short, hand-stitched mini-books with a one-line story accompanying a hand-stitched hankie.
Maxine's Pillow   My first art books date from 2009 and were made of mostly recycled materials with the images and words hand-stitched onto each page and then bound together into mini-books.

In my former life I had five books published, two picture books and three chapter books.
