Hi, I’m Hilary and although Stirling is my home, I now divide my time between Scotland and the South of France, to which I have always felt a strong affinity. I love the language, the arts culture there and all that is shabby chic. I am also really inspired by Japanese aesthetics and design, zen and wabi-sabi, all handcrafts and of course Washi (Japanese paper). Consequently I have a passion for paper and book arts and I love binding beautiful papers, including ephemera, into books of many types. My interest in the use of paper extends to making journals and self-expression through journalling, collaging etc.
