Welcome

Red leather artist journal

I use traditional hand binding techniques to create sketch books, journals, photo albums and scrapbooks featuring unique hand crafted papers. I’m particularly interested in non-adhesive books structures with exposed stitching.

My studio is in a converted brick mill building in Lowell, Massachusetts and I love to share the craft of book making with others, both in the classroom and online. For news and events, please sign up for my weekly newsletter.
