Knowledge is meant to be shared.
Below are articles and tutorials aimed at sharing what I have learned in my three decades as a working artist. I have devoted a lot of time and energy to honing and improving my techniques. When it comes to sharing technical information, I believe in sharing everything and anything I think will benefit you in improving and innovating your techniques.
There are thousands, if not millions, of extraordinary artists in the world. Sharing what I know — resources, tools, and tips — is how I contribute to the community of artisans eager to explore new ways of working with these materials.

After being introduced to parchment work as a hand bookbinder, I pivoted to larger objects, parchment applications for custom furniture, architectural panels and sculptures. In this article for the Guild of Bookworkers Journal I offer technical expertise and process insights to those interested in gaining an understanding of parchment work.
