Erin Keane is an encaustic artist and bookbinder, smitten with beeswax and bindings. Her handbound journals feature encaustic artwork on the covers, distinctive sewing, and hand torn pages.

I have been smitten with encaustic and bookbinding for many years. At first they were separate entities - the art and the craft, the experimental and the meditative – and then they converged. My encaustic journals are designed to honor the blank book as an art form. I have an affinity towards beautiful natural places and comfortable home spaces, and aim to convey a feeling of hushing and holding, peace and tranquility, and awe with our surrounding beauty.
