I have created bookmarks that relate to my GOLDEN DOOR mixed media series.  I used collagraph printing and brush painting with Japanese and Chinese inks on Fabriano paper.

These works are inspired by the promise of New York City, where I was born and raised.  The events at Al-Mutanabbi Street, and more recent trends, show that we must act to insure this potential.


Here are my friends Kate Scuffle and George Miller with their bookmarks. Kate and George are theatre artists; I gave them extra bookmarks to share with friends. As literary people, they were touched by the ideas behind the project.


I was in New York yesterday, and was pleased to share the inmates’ bookmarks at the 42nd Street Library.
