Debra Frances Plett
I practice the art of book making with a focus on handmade journals, artist sketchbooks and artists' books.
I am drawn to the unique blend of precision and creativity that is inherent in the construction of a book that is both functional and beautiful.
Throughout my artistic development I have pursued a quality product that reflects the personal as well as the archival significance that the journal holds. In order to create books that will be long lasting and well loved, my hope is to create books that are appealing in the functional, aesthetic and tactile sense.
I enjoy using a wide variety of materials and textures for my books including recycled art works, artist's print making proofs, leather, fur and textured book cloths.
I am currently enrolled in the Book Arts Certificate program at the Minnesota Centre for Book Arts in Minneapolis where I am acquiring knowledge and proficiency across the book arts' disciplines.
