Artist and Bookbinder
Underpinning my practice is a fascination with the traditional craft of bookbinding and a determination to raise the profile of this declining industry.
I use a combination of embroidery, paper folding, cutting and traditional bookbinding. These very repetitive techniques force a real engagement with the materials, typically papers, threads, tapes, cloths and leathers. I strive to create a balance between art and craft, always maintaining an environmentally and ethically responsible approach. Teaching is integral to my practice.
