handmade books

Art journaling and book making are two of my biggest artistic passions. I have kept a written diary since I was in elementary school, and being able to express myself in writing AND art is very therapeutic for me. Scroll through the mages on the right for examples of the many types of books I have made!

Currently I sell handmade books and journals at The Station, and occasionally list for sale on Etsy.

Making and working with junk journals is a liberating art form. Sometimes putting that first mark on a blank white page can be so intimidating... starting with an already colorful, grungy, marked page can ease that pain and get your creative juices flowing!

These larger scale art journals are one-of-a-kind works of art and made with  a variety of reclaimed and vintage papers, ephemera, fabric, lace, etc. 

I've taken several courses on making handmade journals and books. If you're interested in learning more, I would recommend checking out the classes offered by:
