Debra Frances, Winnipeg, MB: Bookbinding

Venue Section: Skylight Gallery/3rd Floor

Debra has always been a maker, raised in an environment where innovation and creativity were nurtured.  She bound her first book in 2006, a simple artists’ book for her school-aged daughter, and was immediately drawn into the world of bookbinding. Debra is very compelled with how the compact form of the book can house so many wide-ranging ideas. She is especially drawn to the quality and design of historical bindings and is always looking for ways to innovate using contemporary materials and ideas.
