Lorna Stevens is a mixed media artist whose work centers on integrating material and technique to represent subject matter.

Her books include Paradise Drive, a hand-made book of sonnets and watercolors; The Scrapbook of Endangered and Extinct Birds, a compilation of memorabilia related to loss of species; The Broomstick Story, a tale of transformation from one thing to another; Huia, an altered book chronicling the demise of this extinct bird and The Humor Rag, a collection of humor submitted by artists and office workers.

The Brooklyn Museum, the di Rosa Center for Contemporary Art, the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, the New York Public Library, the Numakunai Sculpture Garden in Iwate, Japan, and the SF MOMA Research Library have acquired her work. She received her MFA from Columbia University. and teaches at City College of San Francisco.

I collaborate with authors and artists to create work in which words and pictures join together to create a new relationship, neither dependent on the other, each enhanced by the partnership.
