(Where the magic happens)
Hi there! I am so glad that you found my page. I am a 50 something year old self taught (how did that happen!) who was born with a crayon in one hand and a piece of paper in the other. No, not really, but in truth I cannot remember a time when drawing, colouring, painting and creating was not an important part of who I am. As a child I wrote my own books and illustrated them, created my own board games, drew and coloured my own paper dolls amongst many other creative activities. I was never priviledged enough to have gone to art school. All I know I taught myself. I am not that well versed in computerology and computer graphics, so all that you see comes from me. I don't know how to do it any other way. As I go along and try different things, I learn and I believe I am getting better.
I've designed a line of rubber stamps for a craft company and some of my work is, at present, being turned into digital craft cd's by another craft company to be used as card toppers, speciality papers etc.
