BLUE ROOF DESIGNS

In my studio in beautiful Montpelier, Vermont you will find me hand-binding journals, photo albums, and guest books using traditional bookbinding techniques. I also design and create custom invitations and announcements.

I have an M.A. in the Expressive Therapies, with a concentration in Art Therapy, from Lesley University in Cambridge, MA. My training as an art therapist has fueled my desire to create objects that allow people to celebrate their life experiences and tell their stories – I believe strongly that that everyone has a story to tell.

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 offer a range of bookbinding workshops appropriate for either students or teachers. I have worked in both traditional and non-traditional educational settings, art centers, and community festivals. My experiences as an art therapist have given me invaluable tools that I use when I teach and workshops are easily adapted to make them accessible to a variety of populations. I am a member of the Vermont Arts Council's Teaching Artist Roster.

I also provide private instruction.

Studio open year-round, by appointment.
