I have been a full time bookbinder and boxmaker since 1997. I first became interested in bookbinding during a summer internship at Women's Studio Workshop in upstate New York. At the time I was a printmaking student at Wesleyan University and applied for the internship with the intention of concentrating on making prints but within the first few days I was drawn to bookbinding, fortunately I was able to do both. After college I continued making books and educating myself about making books and was able to land a job as a bookbinder with a small company in San Francisco. I also began teaching small group and private classes and took on a variety of custom projects of my own.
In 2005 I was finally able to settle into my studio in Long Beach CA and work full time for myself. I spend most of my time working with designers, photographers, business folks and individuals customizing...
