I'm delighted to see a profile piece about my work in this month's edition of Country Homes & Interiors. 'Career Shift' gives plenty of details about my unusual journey to being a bookbinder, what inspires my work and why it's the connections with people that motivates me to keep making.
"I realise now the creativity had gone quiet for a number of years, but was just waiting in the wings for its turn on the stage."
The four page article also includes stunning images that evoke the tactile materials, tools and techniques I use to make books. It also reveals the dual inspiration behind one of my bestselling books for artists, the Wabi Sabi Sketchbooks, alongside how I came to be commissioned by The Newt in Somerset to make books for their reproduction Roman Villa and stock their retail store.
"Collaborations with museums and cultural institutions are a good way to level up your artisan business."
It's great to see fellow Dorset creatives, the printmaker and illustrator Robin Mackenzie, and hand embroiderer Jen Goodwin, as well as Gloucestershire linocut printmaker Susie Hetherington, mentioned alongside the feature as I admire the talent and skill of those makers very much.
I hope the feature encourages creatives who are perhaps not on a traditional career pathway, or who have health challenges, to pursue their ambitions - just like I did.
Many thanks to the editorial team at Country Homes & Interiors, journalist Sophie Gale and photographer Alison Dewey of Society 13 Brand Photography.
