Debbie Dutton — Artist Statement

I was inspired by the 15th century Book of Hours in the U of H Rare Books Collection. I could see and feel the scribes constructing each letter and design to fill the pages of this very beautiful, old prayer book. I was fascinated by how each line was finished with a different rectangular design. My artistic inspiration began there. A recent trip to Israel was in the forefront of my mind as I sought one word to illuminate — that word is PEACE. There are a lot of different worldviews, but I believe that Peace is what we all hope for.
