We hope you will be able to find some time to join us on this voyage of discovery to see more and to do more in this amazing world of art and craft that we are part of. There is no map just lots of tours, excursions and adventures of exploration, stretching the mind and imagination.
We are -
From a very young age I have always had a very keen interest in anything Arty or Creative whether it be in the 'doing' or the 'viewing'. I have painted in watercolours, pencil sketched hand painted T-shirts, knitted, sewed and made cards over the years and though I occasionally still let my pencil take a walk along the page or let the paint flow freely from the brush I now spend most of my time crafting making either cards, tags, journal pages or mixed media projects. I began devoting a lot more of my time to crafting in 2011 when I was introduced to stamping and the ‘Creative world’ of Tim Holtz. Both just seemed to nurture my desire, motivation and love to create and since then I would say crafting has become my passion and indeed my therapy. To quote Picasso ‘Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life' - and for me this is never truer!
I am married to an amazing man, and my biggest supporter. We have four children, yes four! I live in the US and work full time as a church secretary. I have been stamping for over 15 years. Creativity is my outlet, passion and purpose. I define my style as grunge meets elegance. Though I love to distress everything, I like to balance my work with a touch of pretty and neat. In addition to stamping, I love to draw and paint and have found that mixed media allows me to blend these skills and create rich artwork, filled with depth and texture.
