I make unique journals and sketchbooks from paper I eco-print with dye plants from my garden just outside of Kingston, Ontario, Canada. I use Coptic binding so that the pages of my handmade books lie flat when they are opened.
I love the seasonal nature of my art. I print and dye during the summer and fall using leaves, flowers and berries. The cold, grey days of winter lend themselves to the meditative process of paper folding and binding.
I also produce custom thermofax screens using my vintage Thermofax™ machine.
Thank you for visiting.
