Description

I am a bookbinder and card-maker. I use plain, lined or dot-grid acid-free, sustainably sourced paper to make  a range of small sketchbooks, notebooks and journals. The books are made completely by hand in my home studio, including cutting and folding the paper, sewing, glueing and binding.

I use either my own hand-decorated papers or patchwork fabrics as covers, and finish with matching ribbons, paper bands or handmade display cases. I work small - 100mm square, A6 or A5.

My main inspiration is colour and pattern. The cards are made with paper hand decorated in a combination of washes with layers of bleached out or printed designs using stamps, stencils or whatever comes to hand in the studio, and assembled into traditional patchwork designs.

 


About

I have been a maker all my life, and continue to sew, knit, crochet, draw, paint, make jewellery and take photographs for pleasure and for friends and family. In retirement I have taken to bookbinding as a commercial venture, and work from home using many found materials, household items and sustainably sourced paper.
