Books have been an integral part of Christine Trexel’s life since early childhood. She grew up on a farm in southeastern Colorado and spent many happy hours lost inside the pages of a book. She firmly believes a day without time set aside for reading is an incomplete day.

 

As an adult she began her journey in creating her own books, which led to boxes, and then to making paper while living in Oregon. She has been fortunate to have taken a wide variety of classes at the Oregon School of Arts and Crafts, as well as, with international known artists in book binding and papermaking.

 

 

People often say I couldn’t write in it your beautiful book; but on the contrary; the book’s life would be unfulfilled without their contribution.” –Christine

 

 

“I have a beautiful piece with a newly composed poem just for Fairweatrher’s”  Christine

Handmade book with handmade paper with a hand composed, hand scripted  poem by Chrisine Trexel.

 

Christine is married to Clark, a talented woodworker and a model ship builder. They live in Astoria on the sunny south slope with their menagerie of three dogs and three cats.

 

 

 

Christine Trexel  lived in Panama for years where she learned to harvest and process plants from her garden to make paper for the books and boxes she creates. The wealth of vegetation forested experimentations and a great love of learning.

 

Christine uses high quality materials in constructing her books and boxes believing that each individual piece deserves the best. The thought of someone writing on the blank pages pleases her. Perhaps her creation helps facilitate their creation; what kind of writings might there be—ideas, fancies, dreams, fears, hopes, despairs, comforts, musings, histories—anything could become part of it.
