collageelainechuAbout Elaine’s work: “I will be showing handbound books/journals, block-print greeting cards, jewelry, and sock creatures. I often use recycled materials to create my whimsical and functional items. I use traditional bookbinding methods combined with modern and recycled materials for my books. I carve slabs of rubber and also create beeswax collages to make greeting cards. Glass and metal beads and mahjong tiles are some of the materials in my jewelry. I also convert socks into plush toys.”

Elaine is an an artist/educator with a background in graphic design and music. She is a co-author of “Wood, Paper, Scissors,” a how-to crafts book. Her work has been published in Greencraft, Somerset Studio Gallery magazines and a number of art books.
