Oregon Art Beat

Timothy Ely

Timothy Ely began to make books in tandem with paintings and prints in the mid-70’s. He studied book binding with some of the world’s most well-known practitioners, honing his ideas for his visual stories and the book format. His love for the materials themselves combines with the use of ciphers and diagrams to create books that are a different kind of mystery.
