About

I am an artist and momma currently living in K'jipuktuk/ Halifax, Nova Scotia with my partner, daughter and cat. I discovered a love of bookbinding here in NS via a notorious (and beloved) bookbinding professor at the NSCAD University, where I also received my BFA. I moved here from Massachusetts to finish my degree in 2008.

Outside of family and business I try to keep my brain making music and art when I can in hopes of having that those up a bit more space in my life again sometime in the near future... fingers crossed.

Mule Mother Books was the result of a genuine love of both books and the art of making books. With everything so immediate and screen-based these days, it's nice to keep simple, slower traditions and practices alive... And screens just don't smell near as nice as a good book…
