When I was 20 years old, exactly 10 years ago, I became obsessed with bookbinding. I was making zines and wanted to bind them myself, so I took out library books on bookmaking (youtube tutorials weren’t really a thing then) and would sit in my room, ignore my women’s studies assignments, and bind books for hours. I started selling my handmade books and zines. I went through different incarnations, an eco-friendly line of reclaimed paper journals, an obsession with Japanese papers – and evolved to my (favourite!) present state, focusing on hand-screenprinted journals featuring my own patterns. The patterns feature ancient cities, moon cycles, and tiny homes.

I love the process of creating an actual object – a concrete, usable thing – from something that started as an idea. The handmade process is important to me: to draw the patterns, screenprint by hand, bind each book individually. I could talk about bookbinding and zine-making and small publishing forever, but basically: it’s such a great way to create a space for yourself. I love hearing about people who’ve used my books to brainstorm ideas, plan out their next steps, or write short stories. I believe deeply in the power of sitting down by yourself with a blank book and realizing all the huge, important things your brain can create when given the space.

I’m currently working on illustrations and a series of small publications / zines about feminist legends. It stems from a forever-long obsession with women’s ancient lives, the use of folklore, and how the two intertwine. You can check out my portfolio site for more:
