I'm Guatyen, bookbinder, journaler and weekend gardener. I have been making handbound journals since 2010. When not making books, I can be found doodling or writing in my journal, tinkering in the garden or out wandering in the lush bush around Auckland.

I love to create first with my imagination, then with my hands. Some days creating is a breeze, inspirations just flow through me and it's like magic, other days not so much. I share much of what other artists live through day by day as a creative person. I am happiest when I am working in my little home studio. I like to experiment with different methods of creating, be that making a journal or other fun crafty things. Photography is also my joy, I love capturing whatever catches my attention. My journal making, craft and photography are all fun creative processes that keep changing and evolving over time and it's all one big happy.

I feel truly blessed. I love living a simple, quiet, peaceful and happy life. I love the abundance beauty the world around me and I am truly grateful to be alive. I live in Auckland with my husband, Gene and our adorable cat, Kiki.
