About Jacqueline


For almost a decade I have found myself drawn to the intimate, tactile, and symbolic qualities of used books. I am interested in how these recycled books come with their own histories of use and meaning and how they serve as potent vehicles of expression. With the idea of working with them as my canvas or building block, I transform the books into sculptures that explore and redefine the book as familiar object, medium, and archetypal form. By scrambling the formal arrangement of the book and transposing its material and conceptual qualities, I aim to create evocative art forms that suggest an alternative narrative.

This is cool. At least she's recycling.

I adore this - as a long-time book junky, this delights me to no end!!

KUDOS to the artist! I would love to see a show of yours, any upcoming dates on the West Coast?

I think that if someone says this art is fabulous, someone else just wants to knock it. Such is human nature.

The pieces I see don't become more than used books rearranged. I like the idea of using used books and that they come with a history but there needs to be more.

I don't see anything inspiring here.

Absolutely inspiring! Great job! The design is unique and interesting. Keep it up!

Absolutely fabulous and cool! The design is exceptional and just very eye catching! Great Work!

I got to say, this is cool, but i like stetches and paintings more, this is kinda usless, but it looks cool.

Fascinating as sculpture - I like books and paper too as they have so many associations with trees, culture etc.

This is really unique, I realy like it!
