Furnace Creek

Furnace Creek is a place of fallen ghost trees, laughing coyotes, snakes wriggling free of their skin. A place of quiet where hearts grow and warm, spirits and passions soar. Color laser printed onto Mohawk Superfine text from an original watercolor by Alicia Bailey that evokes an environment seen through eyes clouded with awe. Twenty-eight page fixed accordion in shaped cover with ribbon tie housed in paste paper covered box with yin-yang bone and bead adornment on box lid.

Artist Statement:

Born in Denver, I have always lived in Colorado, currently maintaining a studio and residence in the Denver metro area. I received my BFA in Studio Arts with an emphasis in printmaking and photography from the University of Colorado. I have worked as a studio artist since then in a variety of two- and three-dimensional media.
For the past twelve years, I have focused on the book form. A familiarity with many materials is invaluable to my approach to the book as interactive sculpture. Expanding the conceptual definition of 'book', I often work with non-traditional materials such as glass, porcelain and steel, although for practical purposes most of my limited edition work relies on more traditional book materials and structures. I have achieved national recognition in this field and work as a visiting artist and instructor throughout the United States.  My work has been exhibited in 35 solo and over 100 group exhibitions in the US, Ireland, Austria, Mexico, England and Canada.
