Book Arts


"La la la"
I made the pages of this book with lots of pieces from my artwork that I cut out, some of them are stitched on and some glued, really fun to make.


This is a glimpse of the inside pages

"Altered Road"
I made this book from a cover of an old road map book.  I just loved the colour combination and the letters, so I cut it up and organized it in a different way.

"Menu in the cutlery"
Mini book with chopsticks and Japanese paper.  How fun is that?

 "Now Open.  Open Now"
Game cards and metal mesh.

"Physics and Math"
Bubble wrap, card games, paper. 

"A for Abundance"
Paper and plastic bolt

The story of the Bunnies

My son Diego (now a non stop talking parrot, before an apraxic kid, who didn't really talk until he was 6 or 7) is a crazy artist at 8 and a half years old, asked me to make him a stuffed bunny.  I like to find ways to engage the kids in the process of everything creative, so I asked him to make a drawing of what the bunny would look like.  The rest is just pictures.............. take a look .....

Diego's drawing of the Bunny

Pattern on fabric ready to cut!

All pieces cut, ready to sew...


Sewed.. ready to stuff.....

Finished!!

"I luv ma bunny...... Mom you're a genius"
(he didn't really say that)


Hey... what are you doing here?????

Ohhh... ok, yeah.....
