Little Free Library

Art is a relaxing hobby for me, and sometimes I get to marry that with my passion for volunteer work.

 

Little Free Library

I worked with the Ginsberg Center at the University of Michigan to design their Little Free Library.

In the spring of 2014, Abby Fanelli of the Ginsberg Center approached me about the Little Free Library they were making. Could I design the exterior?

I looked over the model they’d put together and created a concept:

I envisioned a book being held open and characters falling out.

I like to work with mixed media, so I scoured my collection for book pages. I have a vendor who rescues books from the shredder and saves the pages. Using those, I created a world of characters.

The Ginsberg Center picked a J.K. Rowling quote for the back and I created some Harry Potter characters to grace the corner. Alice also makes an appearance, painting a nearby rose.
