On either side by Linda Welch -SOLD!


A one-of-a-kind painted book by Linda Welch. Her abstract, layered, mixed media books incorporate oil painting, collage, screen printing, found book pages and wax.

Linda tells us: “Each page created emits a different color, texture and emotion. It is the process of placing the individual pages together, to form a cohesive vision, which calls up the story behind the book."
