In Cahoots Press

As proprietress of In Cahoots Press, I integrate letterpress printed pages of my own poetry and images to create limited edition artist’s books. Beginning with a simple concept or idea, I explore and develop visuals, structure and text simultaneously, often while at the press, to create a cohesive whole. It is important to me that all aspects of the book support the content: the text merges with the imagery, the printed pages illustrate through texture, shape and design, and the structure and enclosure complete the idea. The resulting books can be viewed both as narrative visual sequences and as sculptural objects.
