Rencontrez Janine V.

Janine began her career as an illustrator, but soon became obsessed with bookbinding.

After a few years at the Art College, she began creating her own sketchbooks and taught herself bookbinding.

Boxes, cabinets, closets and drawers have always been a fascination. Her graduation project as an illustrator consisted in the creation of an art cabinet, inspired by 17th century cabinets of curiosities, containing a personal collection of curiosities and pieces of her own work (including sketchbooks, illustrations and a screen-printed travel journal).

Through bookbinding (making sketchbooks), she found her way into box making. Janine really enjoys the traditional side of the work, but also keeps her other passion going: story-telling. Her boxes are three-dimensional illustrations of tales and myths, music, animals, a lost love or a family story.
