An elegant peacock, with his lovely long tail feathers adorns the front cover of this blank journal. Bound in a simple traditional Japanese style. The pages are a nice smooth heavier weight paper that minimizes bleed through. Great for pen, pencil or markers. The size is ideal for either writing or drawing. Use it as a sketchbook, journal, or diary. It would make a wonderful gift.
The cover design is my original illustration, filled with a reproduction or variation of my original hand marbled papers. Bookbinding was a natural step to take from calligraphy and marbling, and it’s so much fun to create new colorways and patterns from my old papers.

COMING SOON: all the other things I make using my papers – from pins & pocket mirrors, to note cards & bookmark books!
The cover is printed with my illustration, which is filled with variations of my original hand marbled papers. After cutting the covers and pages to size, the journals are hand stitched together.
Designs based on my original hand marbled papers find their way onto all sorts of products - handmade, by me.
I'm a reader, a writer, a sketcher, and more...
I was a professional calligrapher for years, which led me to the ancient Turkish art of marbled paper. Inks or paints are floated on a specially prepared water bath, and are then manipulated into patterns by use of rakes. A sheet of prepared paper is then laid onto the paint/ink, to create a contact print. My colors and my patterns are not quite traditional - my color choices tend to be very bright, and I introduce more movement into the traditional patterns.
Due to chemical sensitivities, I no longer produce new papers, but by use of my computer, I can, and have, made use of my remaining papers in new ways. I hope you enjoy my creations.
