Our July NORBAG meeting will feature a show & tell presentation by Laurie Moorhead, our member from San Diego. She is a very prolific book artist with books in permanent collections at Baylor University, Collins Library at the University of Puget Sound, and the Cynthia Sears Collection at the Bainbridge Island Museum of Art. In addition, her books have been in numerous juried exhibitions as well as member exhibitions.

Laurel (Laurie) Moorhead came to art late in life. After retiring from a career in business and non-profit management, she began taking art classes and got hooked. She has studied book arts, oil painting, watercolor, urban sketching, colored pencil, paper cutting, collage, rubber stamp carving, gel prints, paper weaving, embroidery, and more. Her preferred mediums are book arts, papercutting, rubber stamp carving and watercolor and ink sketching but she is always interested in trying new techniques.

Laurie's major work is a series of stories of her life, centering around travel. There are currently 13 books in the collection that was started in her first book arts class in 2008. Recently, she has added to this project through the medium of zines. Additionally, in 2015 she participated in her first collaborative project, Over the Moon, through a local book arts organization. This inspired a love of collaborative projects prompting her to lead seven projects and participate in many others.

This presentation will be a wonderful opportunity to see Laurie's books and hear about her journey into the world of art and artist books. Shown below is a sample of a few of her books.
