Student Narrative

Curious Childhood is a Sculptural Artist's book of a handmade curiosity cabinet depicting the collection of objects from my childhood. These found objects I've had since I was a little girl. A hidden bookshelf contains small handmade books with handwritten stories correlating to the objects on the shelves. Stories go back to my childhood; some books have written stories about fun experiences, but the stories get more severe if you look further.
