Artist Statement - I particularly enjoy hand-printed books that
incorporate multiple printmaking processes.
Title Description - After living and teaching in Kabul, I became interested in how Afghan immigrants rebuilt their lives in St. Louis. I sought to weave physical details of their new environment and bits of information I gathered during our conversations with my own prayer for Afghanistan's future.
Physical Description - Hand-printed etching, colograph, and lithograph on Reives BFK. Hand-sewn binding.
