Artist Visit: Susan Hulme

We stopped by Susan Hulme's home studio in Nashville to see some of her new work and samples from the 2010 Paper and Book Intensive: http://www.paperbookintensive.org/pbi2010.html

Although she works a lot with computers in graphic design (and her design work is really great!), she stressed the importance of the physical tactile experience she has when holding a handmade book, working with paper, or printing. The 2010 Paper and Book Intensive was held in Machias, Maine and she created these pieces in Frank Brannon's "Paper Sculpture" class (she also attended Tatiana Ginsberg's "Japanese Natural Colorants for Paper"):

Susan's own clamshell letterpress and a sample from it:
