Examples of other variations will be available to examine during class. There are infinite variations of this simple but beautiful type of book and you will walk away with your very own unique version. All artistic levels welcome in class.

Books have been an integral part of Christine Trexel’s life since early childhood. She grew up on a farm in southeastern Colorado and spent many happy hours lost inside the pages of a book. She firmly believes a day without time set aside for reading is an incomplete day. As an adult she began her journey into creating her own books, which led to boxes, and then to making paper while living in Portland, Oregon. She has been fortunate to have taken a wide variety of classes at the Oregon College of Arts and Crafts as well as with internationally known local artists in book binding and paper making.

Christine lived in Panama for seven years where she grew, harvested and processed plants from her garden to make paper for the books and boxes she creates. The wealth of vegetation fostered experimentation and a great deal of learning.
Since returning to the PNW and settling in the vibrant arts community of Astoria, Oregon Christine has had the opportunity to show her work at Imogen Gallery in Astoria, Fairweather Gallery in Seaside, Imprint Gallery in Cannon Beach, Cannon Beach Art Gallery and in juried shows in Canon Beach Art Gallery in Canon Beach, Lake Oswego Festival of the Arts, and 23 Sandy Gallery in Portland.
