Pat Smith


Artist's Statement

Through books I represent the passions, dreams, dwellings and costumes of people as each reveals the uniqueness of the life they’ve created. Like the surface qualities of their lives, the tactile surface of the page is complementary and so much more expressive than merely the marks made upon it and the images adhered to it.
