APPARITIONS AMONG US SERIES
Apparitions Among Us documents apparitions of the Virgin Mary that have occurred in the continental US since 1945. The lattice-like circles, relief printed on digital prints of USGS topographical maps, radiate from the precise locations of these apparitions. It exists as four accordion folios, with maps on one side and letterpress printed descriptions of the apparition events on the other. This book arose from my desire to share my Apparition Series drawings with more people.

Credo (title page)
Credo uses found paper, machine stitching, graphite and rubber stamps to comment upon the constructed nature of knowledge. It includes a text from Linda Nochlin on the nature of “great art” and includes the names of artists who influenced my creative life on pages made from the envelopes of all of the sewing patterns I ever owned.
