Playing with Rust and Dremels"

Altered Book Gallery

~ Altering Books,.turning the mundane into the sacred , playing with otherwise discarded unloved books and turning them into meaning ful art --thats waht makes my heart sing

~ Having been to a one week art retreat with Michael Demeng ...I am hooked to this beautiful artform that has such a wide scope of possibilities

~ I have heard a lot about Michaels work, purchased his book " The secret of Rusty little Things"

~ still I could not quite imagine how that all would fit in with my style of working ... it seemed so far removed from what I like but I do love a challenge and it felt right when I read the descriptions of the art retreat in Italy off I went ...

~ it takes a leap of faith to travel a long distance hoping to experience a little bit of magic... I was not to be dissappointed at this art retreat ...
