An avid lover of pencils and paints in my school days, I completed an Advanced Certificate in Art and Design majoring in Painting with my minor in Printmaking and discovered the joy of rubber stamping not long after that.
I have been stamping ever since, completing several altered book projects, dozens of card and Artist Trading Card swaps and many other Off The Page Projects. I dabble in scrapbooking thanks to my inspiring friends and a family of 9 nieces and 2 nephews and the advent of digital photography.
I live in Melbourne's bushy outer east with my husband Tony, an international triathlon competitor. Together we love running, discovering new places, exploring historic sites, volunteering, getting out in the fresh air, cooking up a storm for our large extended families or just pottering in our vegie garden together.
I first saw Stampin’ Up! at one of the major paper-craft shows in Melbourne in 2007 and they had a big banner up saying, “Stampin’ Up! Needs All Kinds of Demonstrators”. As soon as I started flicking through the stunning catalogue, I knew I had found the company for me, the catalogue is so beautiful, the hostess rewards are SO generous and I could just see myself being on the other side of the table at the craft shows showing people WHAT I LOVE!
Ever since then, I have had an absolute ball sharing my love of stamping with many new friends and acquaintances through fun home workshops, classes and stamping events.
I have been on a couple of the amazing Stampin' Up! Incentive Trips and have a beautiful team of fun, friendly, creative and supportive ladies from all over Australia, who would welcome you most warmly if you decide the Stampin’ Up! family is for you too!
I hope to see you somewhere along the way with ink on your fingers and wonderful creations to inspire you.
