Paradise Press

Los Angeles and Kentucky

I've been a publisher since 1975, starting with my own artist's books and small press literary books. I learned letterpress printing at the Women's Graphic Center in Los Angeles and started my own press under the imprint Paradise Press in 1978. I received two National Endowment for the Arts Small Press Grants in the 1980s. I was studio director at the Women's Graphic Center and taught at Otis Art Institute and Scripps College Press in the Los Angeles area.

Areas of Expertise

My work is known for its wedding of form and content. My work is widely collected by special collection libraries that collect artist's books. I have taught workshop on Developing Ideas for Artist's Books around the country and am now focusing my teaching efforts in Kentucky and with on-line mentorships. For more information
