“Herbs” is an artist’s book that explores my relationship with food, layered with my experiences as a fiber artist. As I create meals, I am often thinking about not just flavors and taste, but also the visual hues that the natural plant dyes that food and herbs create. The fabric in this book was dyed with the herbs that are the subject of the book and the handmade paper includes the dried herbs as inclusions. The color palette reflects the hues that are attained with these natural plant dyes. This book utilizes letterpress printing, screen printing, and watercolor techniques in the creation of the book form.
