I am a half Italian, half Scots-Irish, with an American education,
living between Brussels and rural Umbria. Pretty much a mongrel.
I studied Fine Arts and Art History at university, but did not discover bookbinding
until about 10 years ago, and it was instant love.
It allowed me to work with two of my favourite materials, paper and leather,
to indulge my love of luxury by adding precious gemstones,
to create tactile treasures that can be enjoyed by generations.
