About Me & My Crafting Journey

My world = my children, family, friends, crafting… and chocolate!

My parchment craft journey began in 1995, but my career transformed when I started working as a Pergamano tutor two years later. I quickly became a familiar face at exhibitions, displaying my artwork and demonstrating parchment craft techniques. Eventually, my designs were published in various magazines and books, including the Parchment Craft magazine.

Over time, I have designed my own range of pattern packs, which I regularly showcased on the TV channel Create and Craft – perhaps the most nerve-racking and electrifying experience of my entire journey!

Joining Claritystamp in early 2016 was an absolute dream come true – it sparked my love for many worlds of creativity outside of parchment craft: stamping, mixed media, art journalling, and more. I was given the opportunity to showcase my Groovi plates on the TV channel Hochanda – designing and teaching the Groovi system alongside the Claritystamp team has been an honour, a privilege and a pleasure.

In March 2020 I diversified once again into the world of Zentangle, which soon became my preferred method for practicing meditation. Having realised its amazing benefits for my mental wellbeing, I became a Certified Zentangle Teacher (CZT™36) in November 2020. As my confidence continues to build daily, I plan to start teaching the Zentangle Method.

On the personal front, I have two beautiful children who have each decided that their primary life’s mission is to bring up their mother without any major crisis – they remain hopeful that one day she will “grow up and act her age”!

Love, laughter and hugs,
