I was inspired to reimagine discarded books while visiting Sicily and resonating with an amazing collection of recovered floor tiles. See:

Out of that experience came my mosaics made with book cover cuttings. I’ve reclaimed thousands of unwanted books and love the wear and tear, vintage designs, colors, textures, marks, beautifully handwritten inscriptions, underlined sentences, entries in the margins, artifacts left inside, bookplates, bookstore labels and illustrations.
