111: Sarah Matthew Printmaker Bookbinder

Mom and I had a wonderful long chat with Sarah Matthews.  I’ve seen Sarah’s colorful layered prints many times, but I didn’t know about her extensive work as a bookbinder.  On the podcast we talk about creating during quarantine, YouTube, artist books, and lots more.  Sarah has four girls and still manages to carve, print, or bind every single day.
