I have always been involved with books. I started out by being a bookworm, reading everything in sight. After finishing college with a degree in Communications and a minor in Geography and Romance Languages I worked as a waitress. Got tired of that pretty quickly and thought I would be a librarian. After all, they got to sit down and read all day so I went ahead and got the degree. Reality hit pretty quickly and I found myself suited for the work. During this time I was a student in the Book Arts program at the University of Alabama where I learned the traditional techniques of bookbinding, letterpress printing, papermaking and paper decoration. I have happily been doing all of it and teaching it ever since!
