Hello,
my shop "Art on Water" is closed as of August 2017. Thank you for your support and enthusiasm for marbled papers, an ancient art that has fascinated and inspired me.

Marbled papers are traditionally made for bookbinding, but are excellent for a wide range of other paper crafts. Art on Water papers are characterized by their vibrant colours and detailed patterns. I also make marbled leather, which I hand-bound into one-of-a-kind leather journals.

About me:
I am a self-taught paper marbler, with a formal education in graphic design. I learned to marble mainly through books and a lot of experimentation. My inspiration comes from all aspects of design, such as packaging, fashion and advertising.
