Valerie Savarie uses vintage books as the centerpiece of her creations, reinventing them into unique pieces through cutting, carving, stitching and character illustrations that are part of a larger visual storytelling. Valerie’s multi-dimensional book collages leave the majority of the book intact - every page is kept as bound to retain the intrinsic book characteristics. Her innovative artworks form an inseparable bond between words and visual arts. Valerie will be showing a collection of altered book art during the new gallery exhibition.
