MAMMAL ROOM Cover!

MAMMAL RM cover

Here it is, folks!  An update on MAMMAL ROOM, as promised!

“LOOOK!!!” was in the subject line of an email sent to me by my sister, Kristen, a few weeks ago.  What we were excited to see was a few potential designs for the cover of her debut collection of poems, MAMMAL ROOM.  Knowing about this has been one of those just-too-exciting bits of information that wants to bubble right out of me.  I’ll admit, and my family will attest to it, I can be a bean spiller about these things.  But with the book sent off to the printer earlier this week, I can finally let it out!

The work my sister and I create takes different forms.  In some ways, though, I think it comes from similar places.  Kristen’s words about my work have always pushed me forward with a reminder of why I make.  I can never seem to accurately articulate what or how I feel, but with every object I create, I come closer to representing, capturing, and evoking those emotions.  It feels incredibly special to have my lack of words support those that she has so carefully crafted.

I sincerely hope you take a look.
