About Me

This is me!

I am happily married with two children, a dog and several small animals, and we all live in a rural village in the north of England, UK. I am a part-time school teacher and currently teach children aged 8 and 9. I am also a crafts tutor 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 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 made six instructional DVDs for Traplet which are available NOW about my favourite subject, art journaling! Click *here* for details.





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.
