Over five years ago, I started my own line of greeting cards with my amateur photography and thoughts, and in 2009 I self-published a book of photographic essays titled "Listening to the Pulse."…

My work is directly connected to my passion for the natural world as art is an extension of life.

Over five years ago, I started my own line of greeting cards with my amateur photography and thoughts, and in 2009 I self-published a book of photographic essays titled "Listening to the Pulse."

That same year, I attended "Step Into the Story", a narrative jewelry class taught by artist jeweler Nina Bagley at Squam Lake Art Center in New Hampshire and was introduced to coptic stitching by the mixed media artist and friend Elizabeth Bunsen. These two events launched me into this new venture to make and sale handmade coptic stitched journals with writers, plastic artists, and scrapbook lovers in mind.

In 2011, I have launched Encadern-Arte in Portugal: a workshop program to teach coptic stitched journal binding techniques and to introduce students to Manifest Journals - a way to explore one's creative and writing skills.
