Announcement    Every handmade book I make is unique, designed often with my own illustrations, and hand bound. I started creating my handmade books over ten years ago, and have enjoyed designing books that reflect my curiosity in the world around us and in art and literature. I also collaborate with clients on personal requests.

All my greetings cards can be personalised with any wording on the designs and inside too! So they are categorised by design rather than occasion. You can have any greeting you want! ..( and I print inside greetings too at no additional cost!)
I design and make handmade books, Birthday cards, Custom made cards, Artist cards, Wedding gifts, Christening gifts, engagement gifts, birthday gifts and anniversary gifts, and I personalise them to make them extra special. Gift giving is all about connection, and I love the opportunity creating handmade goods allowing for that.
I love to make my cards special to the recipient and can include a greeting or poem on the inside, and often incorporate a greeting on the design of the card too. It is always special to receive a card, and how much more when it is an artist illustration tailored to your requirements!

I love to create items that will not be replicated anywhere, reflecting as they do my personal interests in history, philosophy, art, literature, nature and photography. A handmade book is a keepsake that creates a connection between the commissioner, the maker and the recipient. It is imbibed with the care and thought that has gone into it's creation and it's purchase.

Video summary: Crafting a creative life making books, prints and cards- introducing my shop Modestly.

Crafting a creative life making books, prints and cards

My favourite thing is making handmade books, cards and prints of my art for people to enjoy. I hope my handmade books will connect you to the universe. When I'm designing I think about how my work can become part of someone's story. Each of my designs is made with the deep curiosity and respect I feel for the world we inhabit. My creations are filled with personal interests in history, philosophy, art, literature, nature and photography. Random fact about me- I have aphantasia- I have no'mind's eye' ( I cannot conjure up a picture of a cat in my mind, or even 'see' my own children!) which may explain why I have buried myself in art history for all my life. They give me the pictures to discover the world with. Each book is a unique design and I often use my own illustrations. Receiving a genuine handmade item is always special for both the giver and recipient.I recall that ' how we spend our days is how we spend our lives.' Creating is a meaningful life!
