Mandalas have always fascinated me. When I returned to my first love, mixed media, this year after closing my bookbinding studio, I was immediately drawn to creating my own colorful moments of serenity. In a world that is increasingly fast-paced, it's my hope that my artwork will provide a little Zen.

Hi and welcome to Firebird House Press. I am a bookbinder and artist, who creates journals, sketchbooks, and more from reclaimed vintage and antique books.

I love books and journaling, and try to put a unique spin on every book I create. My books are a chance to hold a piece of history and add your story to that history. It's journaling that puts down roots!

I strive to use original ephemera. To that end, I seek out Victorian trade cards, antique postcards, envelopes, old checks and all kinds of papers that will add an authentic touch to the journal.

Every book I create is unique, even if they are the same title, because each one has a little different story. As an artist it's my goal to tell that story.
