This website tells the story of two artists who met in a classroom, bonded for life, and created things together–exhibits and studios–that demonstrate the unifying power of art. 

About Us

Lenett and Jenny met as students in the University of Baltimore’s M.F.A. program in Creative Writing & Publishing Arts in 2003. There began a friendship that would last for decades, built around a mutual respect and love for book art.

Our Workshops

We like to think of our workshops as “human bonding studios.” Using a variety of art materials, we lead groups of people through a journey of self-exploration and genuine connection around a central theme, goal, intention, or work objective of their choosing.

Our Show, Dos-à-Dos

The Dos-à-Dos exhibits celebrate our enduring creative partnership, friendship, and love of book art.  We take joy in turning traditional book art forms inside out and upside down. Lenett and Jenny most recently showed our work together at the Talkin Family Gallery at Howard Community College, and we look forward to sharing our work again together soon with new audiences.
