I love playing with ideas, be it through painting or making jewelry. Although I am a published writer, speaking without words is as much of a challenge, and part of the fun of “living in the land of make believe.”

Using both additive and reductive processes, ink is painted on a plate with either a roller, brushes, tissue paper, pencil, erasure, rag, or fingers. The process continues back and forth, until complete in plein-air, on site.
The plate is then laid on the press and paper is laid on it. Rolled through the press by hand, the ink is transferred to the paper by pushing the paper over the inked plate. The image is rolled through the press only once, making the print one of one.

I grew up and have lived most of my life in Floyd County, Virginia. I always enjoyed all kinds of crafts and only recently have I been involved with a multi-media production of a documentary highlighting the life of a local fiddle maker. I am currently writing a book which will include a family history of my ancestors dating back to the 1700s in the Blue Ridge Mountains, information on some of the local businesses where I grew up but which are now closed, and photos of family never published before.

I have a passion for photography, I love it! For me capturing that perfect shot is like a fisherman catching that big fish that he just has to hang on the wall or a hunter getting that 18 pointer. I don't get it...instead of killing the critters, I'd much rather take their picture.

|Becca Imbur||Bimbur Books & Design||Montgomery|
Bimbur Books & Design is an eco-forward design studio featuring handmade books and journals made from reclaimed, salvaged and repurposed vintage books based in Blacksburg, Virginia
I’m an artist, baker and collector of interesting junk and sparkly stuff that I take home, mess around with and turn into other stuff. I like to make tiny things just because they please me. I also make jewelry, draw and I love paper, polymer clay, paint and fussy details. Ornamenting objects is a wee obsession, as are books, typeface, the Dark Ages (not all that dark), the Renaissance, the Pre-Raphaelites, as well as lots of individual artists, both contemporary and long gone.

|Jennifer June Murphy||Distinctive Handmade Jewelry||Smyth|
After making my first piece of jewelry, I knew I had found a craft about which I was passionate! That was four years ago, and I've enjoyed every minute of becoming an "artisan." My style varies, depending on how the metal or bead speaks to me. I enjoy metal and wire work especially, as well as playing with color and texture. I live in Chilhowie, VA with my husband and two boys.
