Book Arts Consignment Artist Directory
Harumo Sato of Harumo Bakery
Harumo Bakery is an illustration studio owned and managed by Japanese Artist Harumo Sato, based in Mountain View California. As she loves baking bread, she enjoys making colorful and whimsical illustrations which evoke imagination and provide joy and happiness for all. She hopes this studio grow like your neighborhood bakery, a place to get something interesting, new, fun, and exciting that you can share with your love. She started her career with a Book Arts artist residency 2015 right after the graduation from University at Buffalo and deeply learned how to use creativity to support community and herself. 😛
Chris Charles of Moon Rabbit Press
Hello! I’m Chris Charles, a printer, designer and teacher, living the life in Rochester, NY. I started Moon Rabbit Press in 2010, after a serendipitous introduction to letterpress printing the previous year. I draw inspirations from my surroundings both natural and man-made – so sometimes I’m printing the birds at my feeder, sometimes it’s my favorite cocktail shaker. Either way, I never shy away from bold colors and a little humor.
Molly Beres of Molly Illustration
I’m Molly Beres, an illustrator and graphic designer working out of Buffalo, NY. Besides art, I love cartoons, old timey murder mystery novels and films, critters, and laughing ‘til I cry. I discovered the Book Arts Center years ago when I took a screen printing class with my then boyfriend (now husband). It was such a unique place with a great mission that I knew I wanted to stay involved. ☺️
Alexa Joan of Eat Off Art
I am a creative! I have recently allowed myself to be called an Artist, strange but I have always felt that word was reserved for, you know, ARTISTS. My household is filled with artists that work in all types of genres, visual arts, jewelry design, writing, sneaker design and so much more. I am a jewelry designer, visual artist and chef. My creation that has found it way into the Western New York Book Arts Center are #Fleathers. Hand painted & upcycled leather earrings. They are light, lyrical and beautiful. I am not sure how I discovered Book Arts – I simply don’t remember those small details – I do remember the amazing times I have visited the center, all of the wonderful people that work there and the phenomenal work that is always on display and in the gift shop. I am happy to be a part of it all.
Michelle Perkins of Speakeasy Works
I make textile products, working primarily with upcycled/repurposed/custom fabrics and often transforming them with the use of hand-embroidery, screen printing, and block printing. I first got involved with Book Arts when I wanted to learn screen printing and took several classes with the amazing illustrator and artist Anne Muntges. My favorite description of the Speakeasy Works style came from a shopper at one of Book Arts’ Last Minute Panic sales. She took one look at my table and exclaimed, “It’s like heaven for feminist nerds!” So if you love books, science, equal rights, probably cats, and possibly swearing, my stuff is probably right up your alley.
Debra Eck of DryadArt Studios
HI there! I’m an English teaching artist living and working in Jamestown NY. My studio is on the third floor of my old house – up in the tree top of an ancient maple, surrounded by the tree spirits my studio is named for – the dryads. I took a books arts class as an undergrad at UB, which was a gateway to a slippery slope, and I’ve been making books ever since. I love all the traditional art forms associated with books, I enjoy making paper and many forms of printing, and I LOVE sewing which is why my books often feature elaborate sewing.
