Fruma Shrensel created her first artist book, Ordinary Things,
in 1995 while working as a graphic artist in a commercial print shop with a
newly acquired Indigo digital press, cutting-edge technology at the time.
An artist with a passion for books, Fruma thought she had created a new
art form using digital technology—until she discovered The Center for
Book Arts in NYC, where she studied letterpress printing and bookbinding
with seasoned professionals in the book arts world.
Fruma recently began studying relief printing and monoprint to incorporate
into her books. She continues to refine her artistic skill and technique
with study and practice, calling on the rich artistic resources available
throughout the country.
Her work is included in the special collections of the University of Washington, New York Public Library, Ringling School of Art, University of Connecticut, and many private collections.
