I am a self taught book artist! I make handmade journals from reclaimed leather. I travel to the mountains of North Carolina and pick out each piece of leather that will become a journal cover. Each journal is one of a kind, something is always different. It might be the color of the thread I use to bind the book or the stitch. I think of each of my journals as a personal artistic creation. A little bit of me is in each journal . I use only the finest quality materials whether repurposed or new, colorful handmade papers, leathers and other materials.
A handmade journal comes to life when the pages are filled with writings, drawings, pictures, paintings or doodles.
I hope you will love my journals as much as I love making them, and that they become one of your prized possessions..
