Kentucky Crafted Artist
  • Mixed Media 3-D; Fiber; Leather


    I am an eco-friendly Kentucky artist and owner/designer of Re-Imagined by Luna, which offers handcrafted, one-of-a-kind journals, sketchbooks and other unique creations made from upcycled materials.

    I grew up on a wooded farm in Eastern Kentucky, spending half of my time playing among the trees and the other half devouring books and filling up journals. Journaling has been a deeply transformative experience in my life, and I began bookbinding in 2005 because I appreciate its meditative quality. My aesthetic inspiration comes from nature, ancient spiritual traditions and anything whimsical, which I  combine with the functional aspects of a journal.

    I am mostly self-taught, and I enjoy the challenge of re-imagining my materials by incorporating discarded and recycled textiles to make each piece unique.
