About This Class


Learn to create a six page book, which can range from the incredibly simple to gorgeously elaborate, using only one sheet of paper. This class teaches a folding and cutting technique used to make quick and easy books and helps brainstorm new ways to look at visual narrative and the art of picture books.

I really enjoyed learning this technique! Great class!
I like your approach to the "one page book". The structure is elevated with the emphasis on incorporating the inside fold/ back of the sheet.

I am an Illustrator, Comic Artist and Arts Educator living and working in Eugene, Oregon. 

Before moving to Oregon, I studied Illustration at the Edinburgh College of Art and then Illustration: Authorial Practice at the University College Falmouth, in England for my MA.
I love all facets of illustration, visual storytelling and the making of picture-books and am thrilled to find more avenues to both teach and learn more about my practice.
