About Me

This is me!

I am happily married with two teenage children, and we all live in a rural village in the north of England, UK.  I am also a crafts tutor teaching in the UK and other parts of Europe, and love to share my passion for all things arty with others.  I have contributed regularly to Craft Stamper magazine (UK), and have been on several design teams. I am currently a helping artist for DecoArt and am also on their Media Design Team, and I am contributing artist for Gel Press and produce FREE instructional videos every month. I love rubber stamping and have designed various rubber stamps. I have had my art published in several publications including Somerset Art Journaling, Stampers Sampler, Artful Blogging, Somerset Studio, Somerset Apprentice, and Art Specially for You (NL). In 2012 I spent three glorious days at Ranger Ink, USA, to become a Certified Ranger Educator woohoo!!

I have filmed several on-line classes which are available *here*

I have also made six instructional DVDs for Traplet about my favourite subject, art journaling! 

I have designed a range of stamps for Stampotique originals. Click *here* to see the full range.

I like to sell my art, hand carved stamps and DVDs on Etsy *here*.

I am also a musician and play in a ceilidh band (Yes! Really!)

I am the QUEEN of MESSING ABOUT! I love nothing more than playing with paper, acrylic paint, old texts, rubber stamps etc etc etc 

I also love wine and chocolate, and plenty of it.
