Monet Miniature Binding


I have spent the last week sorting through photographs on both my phone and camera, in order to try and get back on top of them and also update my website. I have had to go it alone with taking and editing the photographs of my finished bindings since leaving the UK…

This is absolutely incredible.

“Maybe poems are made of breath, the way water,
cajoled to boil, says, This is my soul, freed.”

“What if
everyone you’ve loved
were still alive?
That’s the province of the young,
who don’t know it.”
