"Red Book I is part of a series I created using found books and red velvet. It is based on memories of religious books I had seen each Sunday in church as a child. Growing up in rural Greece, I did not have books of my own, as books had a monetary value that my family could not afford. Having missed out on fairy tales and stories allows me to create new lives for them. Folding, cutting, and sewing pages has become my meditative process as I try to touch the past and enter their world."
