Like a wandering minstrel of old, Chandler traverses the country in search of beautiful sights and great stories. Only instead of retelling the tales she finds with tinny harp accompaniment, she records her various discoveries with ink, paper and paint. Many of her travel-oriented prints begin as on-sight sketches and scribbles. She then uses her background in bookmaking and her all-encompassing understanding of typography to enhance the illustrations with hand-lettered inscriptions. She carefully researches all of her subjects, so you’ll find that the final products are a spellbinding combination of artistic personality and cold hard facts.
