    Announcement    Welcome to my world!
    This is where you will find one of a kind works or art, all handmade by me, Jennifer Kring!

    Each Spring and Fall, I will release an exclusive collection of Altered Books. These pieces are little worlds that are hand drawn and carved into the pages of a book. They invite the viewer to get lost or swept away for a bit, just the way we do when we read a fantastic book.

    These works will not be duplicated or copied. They are one of a kind, original artworks. Signed, sealed and ready to join your own art collection.

    This group is the very first line of Jennifer Kring Altered Books. Find your perfect addition today. If it isn’t here, commission it and let’s bring it to life.

    Thanks for loving art and taking a glimpse into my world,
    Jennifer

    About

    Beginnings...

    Betsy (my grandmother) was a reader... big time... She had a huge library of books. It was my favorite place. I loved that part of her home. It was quiet and cozy and there weren’t too many things I could break. She had ever so many books. Books that now live with me. Some of these books were Readers Digest books. You know those small ones with condensed stories of larger novels all smushed together with a hard cover that resembles 70s wall paper patterns. Yep, I had a lot of these. A lot.
    I had already read most if the full original novels, so I found myself thinking that these could be something...something more. So I hollowed one out. As it sat on my drawing covered desk, I wondered what it would Look like for these drawings to be put inside the book. So I layered images at different depths in the book to create a little world that seemed like you could step into it.
    And it was perfect.
    Now, 15 books later, I could not be happier with these little journeys into other worlds.
    It is my hope that they are not only a source of happiness and joy, but also that they inspire their viewers to dive into the written word as well.

      Altered book artist from Georgia. My favorite color is red. I love Peonies. I think pomegranates are a high maintenance fruit. I still love Polly Pockets. My first job was the Line Leader in Mrs. Powell's class. There is no place like home.
