In my earlier career as a children’s book author and illustrator, I created stories with words and pictures. Now I create stories with my bookends. I recycle gently used figurines, some dating as far back as the 1960s, and match them with backgrounds I fashion out of pages of discarded children's books, gift wrap, posters and other paper sources. A new re-purposed item is born! I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoy making them.
