The Altered Editions of Rachael Ashe

Rachael Ashe is a Vancouver artist whose specialities include photography, collage, and a very unique approach to the art of book alteration. Drawing inspiration from the vast variety and influence that our cities nature provides us, Rachael strives to incorporate bits of nature into all of her artwork. We sat down with Rachael as she shared exactly why she alters books, how she approaches them, and what drives her unquenchable desire to create.
