Featured Artist – Isobelle Ouzman
Isobelle Ouzman is a Washington State artist, born in the UK. Her Altered book series transforms unwanted books into fine art.
Her drawing is detailed and delicate, monochromatic, and with a vintage romanticism for nature, the depth to her work is created by cutting through layers of pagers, to give perspective to her work.
Every book comes from a dumpster, a recycling bin or a thrift store.
With an obvious love of books, Ouzman works to reinvigorates them and breaths new life into otherwise the otherwise unwanted books with a ton of glue, an exact knife, pen, watercolors and a ton of patience and love.
Books take between two and three months to complete, and can be custom ordered for a special occasion, and are also available on Etsy.
