Local artist to have work displayed at Havelock library

"Then from there, I just started to go on trying to think of things that I could do with book pages," she said.

The work progressed from hair bows, jewelry, and necklaces to her current pieces.

"I just started experimenting," Healey said. "I just tried to make them look a lot more lifelike. Some of them were just a little too flat. They were a little traditional. So I just started playing around folding the paper and trying to give it a different look."

The works are generally 5-by-7 inches, with a maximum width of 11 inches. It all depends on the book pages, be it dictionaries, novels or poetry books.

"Sometimes the older books are a little more delicate and harder to use," Healey said.

She has made prints of many of her works and sells those, plus originals, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. most Saturdays at the Farmers Market in New Bern.

Healey’s work will be on display at the library through the end of the month. The library is open 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Mondays through Wednesdays, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Thursdays and Fridays and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays.
