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 a 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. I’ve made lots of books. I’ve made many mistakes and 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.
