Jody Alexander on her artwork: “I like to give people just so much information and then let them run with it. Let them take what experiences they’ve had so far in life and fill in the blanks.”
Jody’s artwork always starts with a book. Whether she’s binding a book or taking it apart to make a sculptural piece – books serve as the anchor for Jody’s art. As a librarian and bookmaker, she is surrounded and inspired by books everyday.
Jody loves to bind books in a style that leaves the stitching exposed on the spine and she enjoys recreating historical structures. She often combines her books with items that she’s gathered to create sculptural pieces and installations. The books, objects and other items that Jody creates tell her stories.
Her artwork has been exhibited internationally and she has taught book arts in Boston, New York City and San Francisco. Jody has recently opened Wishi Washi Studio, her own teaching space in Santa Cruz, California.
