Dear you,

Using an armoury of play, humour and poetry as lure, I am an artist besotted with paper. A fine arts graduate of RMIT, my limited edition artists’ books, prints and other projects hard to pin down are often made collaboratively with fellow artist and graduate, Louise Jennison.

Our artists' books can be found in the collections of: Artspace Mackay; Bibliotheca Librorum Apud Artificem; Deakin University Library; Melbourne University Library; Monash University Library; National Gallery of Australia; RMIT University Library; State Library of New South Wales; State Library of Victoria; State Library of Queensland; Tate (UK); University of the West of England (UK).

Our work has been commissioned for The Australian Ballet; Big Issue; NETS Victoria; Australian Poetry; The World of Interiors (UK); ACE Hotel (USA); and UPPERCASE magazine (CAN) amongst others.

I am also known to collage with words, writing about dance for Fjord Review.

I hope you enjoy what you find here and thank-you for stopping by.

Yours in paper roll, Gracia Haby

    Traveller dear,

    Louise Jennison and I make artists’ books, we make all sorts of things, and most usually we make things on paper. Collaboration comes naturally to us both; it is an enjoyable and wholly inspiring process that yields treasure not possible without the other. Working side-by-side, as we do from our home-based studio in Melbourne, Australia, it is a pattern we are familiar with; a path we are delighted to tread, seeing what new scenario evolves. Collaboration throws up the unexpected, and what is not to like about that?

    With paper sufficient to cover the moon and sincerely yours,
    Gracia Haby
