Like many people, I liked to make and draw at an early age. After leaving school, I went to college to study art. It was a multi-disciplinary course where I practiced everything from oil painting, watercolour, pen and ink, mark making, ceramics, printmaking, textiles, to bookbinding.
I found bookbinding to be both therapeutic and rewarding, and got slightly addicted to the making process. I developed my own style over the years, creating my the kind of books I love to use.
After college I studied illustration and design at university. I made all my own sketchbooks and work journals, which were a huge hit with fellow students and lecturers. I got my BA and Master's degrees, and began my Etsy adventure!
You can see more behind the scenes stuff on Instagram @helencoldwell or share pictures from your journal with #mybadbooks - I love seeing what people do in my journals :)
