Jodie has been involved in arts and crafts for many years, taking art classes at various venues in her leisure time, and sketching with Urban Sketchers Chicago.
Jodie lives in Woodstock, Illinois with her two cats, Moose and Annie. Annie is a calico, who recently added the color blue to her multicolored coat by insinuating herself into one of Jodie’s art projects.
Jodie became interested in bookbinding several years ago owing to her love of paper and the challenge that bookbinding brought. At this year’s seminar, Jodie will again be teaching the workshop, Coptic Bookbinding.
