CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Jackie Moffitt is an artist who lives in the Charlotte area. She specializes in ink drawings and book carvings.

Her carvings are actual hardcover books that are bound shut. She then literally carves images down into the book itself, designed in one solid piece. Jackie's tools are xacto blades and tweezers.

She was our special in-studio guest this morning on Larry's Look. Jackie displayed examples of her amazing art, including a large book about the Grateful Dead.

This was a commissioned project and is a beautiful piece of artwork. She carved-out individual  pictures that are featured in the book. Sometimes she takes a book and totally creates a special image from all the pages.

Her work will be on display at the Charlotte Fine Art and Craft Show. That's May 10-12th at the Charlotte Convention Center.  For more about Jackie, go to:  www.littlemissmoffitt.typepad.com.
