Each sketchbook is usually devoted to one particular media, such as graphite, or watercolors.’ -Margaret Neill


Margaret Neill is also, ‘very involved in the book format, one page to the next in sequence and also the idea of the spread‘ [2 facing pages] and the spine. ‘Working in sketchbooks allows me to see what comes up organically without any predetermined notion of expectation.’


The found books are another series. I mostly use dictionaries and a Lincoln Library [of essential information], responding to the grid on the page and the idea of a vehicle of information. What is interesting to me is the beginning, middle, and end, as in a book that one reads.
