Bookbinding and Paper Crafts

In my studio in beautiful Montpelier, Vermont, you will find me hand-binding journals, photo albums, and guest books using traditional bookbinding techniques. I have been making books for the past 22 years and I sell my work professionally under the business name of Blue Roof Designs.

I work with handmade papers and materials from both local artisans and from around the world. I have a special interest in using “green” materials that contain recycled content. I strive to create books that maintain the beauty and integrity of the materials with which I work.

I'm a big believer in the power of using books for self-expression and I really enjoy making blank books - each book is meant to be transformed by the owner. The owner of one of my books will put his or her own life experiences into the book, making it truly one-of-a-kind.
