About Me

Personal Statement

I make hand-bound books, employing traditional bookbinding skills and methods.

I live and work in a beautiful rural location in Shetland. Primarily a textile artist specialising in fine hand sewn embroidery, I began bookbinding and immediately took to the whole process.

I have always loved texture,natural fibres,papers and card fascinate me and hold exciting and magical properties. In my books I combine the both.I use 100%
Shetland wool, Fair Isle knitwear, Shetland tweed and hand made felt as bindings. All make extremely tactile and practical covers.

I make notebooks, sketchbooks, journals and albums and also work to commission.

Incorporating these textiles I hope to continue and celebrate the indigenous crafts and industries of a unique tradition and heritage.
