It didn’t take long for me to realise how easy it was to express my creativity through making books. I have always wanted to find a way to respond to art, poetry or music that has moved me -a method of interacting with something so overwhelmingly beautiful by making something with my own hands and skill. I’ve learned the fundamentals and have made a lot of books. There have been many mistakes and but I have enjoyed some surprising successes.

Getting the basics down is easy. That part can be learned. But trusting your intuition enough to make a book that expresses who you are… that’s where the heart is.
