I have been “creating” for as long as I can remember. My grandmother taught me to embroider at about the age of 6, and throughout the years I have continued the creative journey with many activities including papermaking, painting with both oils and acrylics, decorative and folk art painting, where I was fortunate to take many workshops in Australia and the USA-the highlight of which was a week long workshop with Jo Sonja. For the last 20 years I have been involved with paperarts- off the page and altered books, scrapbooking and stamping.
I have had many pieces published in Somerset Studio and Australian magazines, taught workshops at Paperific and also taught classes at Melbourne stamping shops.
I love to create my own backgrounds-a carry over from my painting days, love using dies, and enjoy CAS styles just for variety. The incurable romantic in me is also challenged when I am asked to create commission wedding cards.
