This book celebrates a feast of friendship. It was a wonderful collaboration with seven women (friends and family) who are all important people in my life. They also happen to produce amazing creations in their kitchens. Each submitted a favorite cake recipe, which I used to visually create the individual slices of cake (pages of the book). Each slice has a flap, which unfolds to reveal the recipe for that cake. Bon appetit!

Eventually, she took classes to learn skills like bookbinding and letterpress printing. She is now a self-professed book junkie, making all kinds of books and teaching bookmaking workshops. Her day job is teaching visual art and design at a career-technical high school. In 2010 she was honored by the Ohio Art Education Association with a regional award as Outstanding Art Teacher.
