I studied Design History and Bookbinding at Brighton Polytechnic (now Brighton University).
I run regular workshops in traditional and contemporary book forms at arts centres and book festivals in the South West of England. I have taught bookbinding to Art and Design students at Somerset College, Petroc, Exeter College, Plymouth University and the Slade, UCL, and am an associate lecturer in Graphic Design (Bookbinding) at Falmouth University.
I make and repair books to commission, and work with a team of book conservators for the National Trust, All Souls College, Oxford and other libraries.
I am a member of the Society of Bookbinders and the Devon Guild of Craftsmen.
