She learned binding from S. Prideaux and D. Cockerell and set up her own bindery; her work was supported within the private press and Arts and Crafts circles. Many of her more than 300 bindings are preserved in major collections. She also carried out conservation work on early books and MSS, and taught binding to the nuns of Stanbrook Abbey.
