Hand Bookbinding and Restoration

The faerie queene

I learned the craft of bookbinding at The Book Restoration Company in Kenosha, Wisconsin, where I trained for 3 years with James Twomey.  I opened the Tea Cup Bindery in 2006. In 2008, I learned the art of marbling with Galen Berry, and now offer hand-marbled papers for use on books and for sale.
