Book Binder - STUDIO 9



With a strong belief in the power of the written word and a lifelong love of books, I have been making my own books since childhood.  It was not until many years later living in Sienna, Italy that in 2013 I first studied the art of bookbinding. Since then my passion has been fueled and I am continuously learning both in workshops and classes, and through my own curiosity and experimentation.

Today my custom made journals and sketchbooks are sold internationally, and it is my joy to share and teach journal making workshops in Gloucestershire.
