I had been experimenting with several different media for years when I discovered books. I fell in love with the possibility of the form; how binding serves as an introduction to the content, the structure and movement, the anticipation of the turning page, and the following surprise or resolution. All the senses are involved when one handles a book.

I have been making journals since 1998 and have taught many workshops on the subject.

Education includes classes at the American Academy of Bookbinding, and workshops with local and nationally known binders, and trial and error.
