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, with various small animals.  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 various magazine in the UK and USA, and have been on several design teams. I currently design rubber stamps, art printing plates, and stencils for Carabelle Studio. I am  a helping artist for DecoArt, and also contributing artist for Gel Press and produce FREE instructional videos every month.  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). 


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


I have contributed to several on-line collective art workshops including 21 Secrets, Wanderlust, Art Journal Summer School.


I made six instructional DVDs for Traplet about my favourite subject, art journaling but sadly Traplet no longer exists as a company so these DVDs are no longer available.
