Christmas Interview – Gina Page

Visiting Anneli’s Place today is a talented artist. Gina Page uses a variety of unusual materials to create unique works of art. Etchings and papermaking combine to make one-of-a-kind books that display Gina’s artistic and poetic talent.

Here are some samples of her handmade books.

  1. A woman of few words.
    I did have a fantasy that I almost thought was real of staying at the big hotel in Banff and being snowed in over Christmas and meeting a (friendly) bear.
