I make unique, personal, and exquisitely crafted design bindings, boxes and other commissioned works.
My design ideas stem from both the text and illustrations of the books I bind. My inspiration is derived from a collection of experiences, observations from daily life, found objects and the natural world. I’m always striving to improve my technique and avidly explore other crafts in order to render visually rich and technically evocative bindings.
I am fascinated with contrast of texture, form and movement, incorporating asymmetry and Earth elements. I tend to work on one book or small editions at a time, utilizing a combination of traditional materials, found objects, and modifying or manipulating decorative techniques to realize the final design. My aim is to craft bindings that provide a visual, sensual, and tactile experience.
