This week Anderson University Art+Design alumna Megan (Barnett) Winn (BA '07) was a featured Indiana Artisan on WISH-TV’s IndyStyle. On the show she demonstrated how to create a leather-bound journal, something she does every day as the owner, artist and book-binder behind The Binding Bee.

Winn first learned the art of book-binding as a fine arts major at Anderson University. In 2009 she began selling her handmade books and journals online; gradually it evolved into her full time job.

Winn will be one of many artists at the Indiana Artisan Marketplace this weekend, held in the Expo Hall at the Indiana State Fairgrounds.
