About the Artist

Madeleine Rousseau finds that book arts is such an integrative and inclusive artform, as it allows the artist to embrace printmaking, letterpress, papermaking, calligraphy and textile art and take it to become a 3D sculptural object that can also be functional. As a late-bloomer, Madeleine is on the steep part of the learning curve, and she discovers with continued amazement that the creative Haha moment reveals itself once she lets go and trusts the process.
