Artist's Statement

I started bookbinding to take care of my own collection of antique illustrated books and to learn more about the Art of the Book. Through the Ottawa Valley Chapter of the CBBAG I became deeply involved in the bookbinding craft and indeed so absorbed that I took the full series of CBBAG courses and obtained the "Certificate of Completion”, plus many other workshops. I like exploring new and old bookbinding techniques, and the different artistic opportunities of a moving 3-dimensional object.
