During the pandemic lockdown I began making collaged postcards to send to family and friends. Then I made bigger collages. And more collages. And more. I made an entire book of collages just for me about my marriage and divorce. Other favorite themes include fairy tales, domestic bliss (or not,) global warming, Mother Earth, and adoption, You can see some of them on https://www.instagram.com/deniseemanuelclemen/.
I also make hand bound books and zines. Sometimes I make my own paper in my basement laundry sink. I’m working on my certificate in book arts from http://www.mnbookarts.org/about/. It’s an amazing place.
