I studied Design History and Bookbinding at Brighton Polytechnic, and have been working as a bookbinder for more than 25 years.
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 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.
