Lisa Jones - Creative Artist & Bookbinder.
I am originally from West Cumbria and for the last 13 years I have lived in Kendal with my husband and our newest addition, our cheeky Cockapoo, Pepper. I am an avid collector of handmade artisan notebooks and admire and love creativity in all its forms.
My adventures into abstract art and bookbinding began when I started to make my own notebooks in 2019 as a hobby to help me deal with a stressful job.
My growing interest in abstract art has lead me to start creating my own cover designs using my original artwork. Our incredible natural surroundings in the Lake District inspire me to create unique splash art that represents the colours and textures of the beautiful mountains, forests and lakes here.
I use handmade recycled cotton rag paper and recycled cartridge paper for my own art and now specialise in making unique Cotton Rag Art Journals and Notebooks using these tactile recycled and sustainable materials. All my books are entirely handmade and folded, cut and sewn from scratch in my little Kendal bindery.
I am also passionate about ensuring that my business is completely planet friendly and I only use recycled and sustainable papers and materials in my work.
