Until then, please visit the "finished books for sale" pages of this site to see everything I have available for immediate purchase.  There may also be a few books that have been recently-completed that appear on the fine blank books Facebook page (check the albums) that do not yet appear on the "finished books for sale" page here.

I ship worldwide, ya'll!

Custom orders always welcome too.  Contact me by e-mail to get the discussion started on your custom order.




In January of 2017, I was featured in the "Studio Visit" section of the Champaign-Urbana News Gazette.  Link to the interview below.

Like getting hammered?


If you are a fan of the hammered copper pieces that sometime show up on my book covers, you might like the forged (hammered) sterling silver jewerly that I make.  I will be selling jewelry along with my handmade books at the upcoming events listed above.  I'll have a variety of one-of-a-kind hammered sterling silver pendants and leather wrap bracelets with handmade, forged, sterling silver clasps.  Come visit me where I'll be sharing a booth with (or will be set up next to) my super-talented friend Lydia Puddicombe who creates very unique carved storytelling art on board!  The image on the Handmades Sale poster above is one of hers.

My jewelry can be found on Etsy by searching the name of my jewelry business:
