Welcome to my website, I am an Artist + Designer making artist books and prints,
book installations and customised hand bound journals.
I studied Architecture and Art & Design at Edinburgh College of Art
and I have an MA in Contemporary Art Practice.
I work from my studio But n Ben Bindery & Press in Maxton,
in the beautiful Scottish Borders.
