Ariel Hansen Strong is a book artist, printmaker, and designer based in San Francisco, CA. Her interest in artists’ books began while studying sculpture at the San Francisco Art Institute (BFA 2011). She utilizes the form of the book in her work because it calls for an intimate experience of blended text and visuals.
