The focus of my work is on creating functional items that are pleasing to both eye and hand.  I want my books to be both visually admired and “petted” because they feel good in one’s hand.  The form of the book will enhance the use – whether to read or to write in – to which it is put.  I put creative energy into my books in such a way that their next owners/users will connect positively with that energy.
