Artist statement: While learning the highly traditional and carefully controlled Jaanese Stab binding techniques, I wanted to JUST STAB. Exploring the reasons for wanting to JUST STAB, it was cathartic to work through the images, research background material, and interact with fellow students to see what images resonated with others. There is an undertone of hope throughout the book. I feel better now.
