About The Artist
My name is Rachelle Dyer and I am a dancer, aerialist, magician's assistant, ballet/dance teacher, artist and I guess a crafter as well. As a dancer I traveled the world and danced and performed on many stages which led me to learn aerial silks and other crazy circus stunts. I also learned the ins and outs and behind the stage secrets of magicians and spent days learning how to fit in small boxes and avoid being stabbed by swords. All of these exciting adventures eventually led me to become chronically injured. Although injuries are the bane of my existence my down time was used to paint, draw and explore the art world. Art is something I enjoy almost as much as dance and is the perfect thing to occupy my mornings before I head to the studio to teach ballet. Book making was something I started to fill my spare time during the summer. I realized I had a vision to create something unique. There are many hand bound books out there and some amazing leather artists but very few actually paint their books. I look at it as beautiful paper bound between two works of art! Something useful and aesthetically pleasing giving you the best of both worlds!
