Inspired to Create

Kris Stewart is a bookbinder and artist who specializes in leather journals, artists books and paper marbling. She’s always been a maker and discovered the art of making books in 1998. She's been hooked ever since! After buying commercially made decorative papers for years, she realized she should be making her own and new obsessions were born: paste paper and paper marbling. You won’t find any fancy laser cutters or automated machines in her studio — everything she makes is produced by hand with an eye for detail, beauty and function.
Kris recently moved to Walla Walla, an oh-so-cute town in SE Washington, set among wheat fields and vineyards at the foot of the Blue Mountains. In her spare time she enjoys walking the town, wine tasting and exploring the countryside. She’s excited to see how her new surroundings influence her work!
