About my products

The products in this shop are comprised of handmade paper, made by myself in my home studio in German Village, Columbus, Ohio. The fiber is comprised mainly of raw cotton and abaca fibers, as well as recycled scraps of this blend, and archival fine art papers. Embellishments to the handmade paper include florals, other plant material, and paper collage. Sometimes I will also include found objects, plant material, or up-cycled vintage print material into the covers, end-pages, and in some cases even the pages themselves. Typically I will varnish the cover and end-pages with an acrylic glaze in order to protect the pages from any un-archival material, and to enhance the durability of the covers. I create books of all sizes from pocket journals to large guest-book size, as well as cards, stationery, and offer the paper itself. My plain pages are an archival, textured cotton abaca blend and are treated with a cellulose emulating alkylketene dimer sizing which controls the absorbency of the paper and gives is crispness and durability. The pain paper works well with both wet and dry media, and is moderately textured. Some books are geared more toward scrapbooking and contain more texture and additives within the pages. Existing items listed in this shop cannot be modified, however inquiries about existing items, or custom orders for new items are welcome! Thank you.
