Books have been an integral part of Christine Trexel’s life since early childhood. She firmly believes a day without time set aside for reading is an incomplete day. As an adult, she began her journey into creating her own books, which led to boxes and making paper. Christine grows, harvests, and processes plants from her garden to make paper for the books and boxes she creates. Christine has had the opportunity to show her work at Fairweather Gallery in Seaside, in juried shows, and in selected venues.
