Mixed Media allows me to tap into my craft skills in needlepoint, painting and calligraphy, presenting them in a whole new format. I love playing in the full range of paper crafts, from graphic, collage and everything in between, getting off the beaten track or page using mixed media in home décor and mail art are my favourites. Our family is well travelled, for this little creative mind decorating mail came naturally and Nick Bantock inspired me to try other forms of mail art.
For me there is nothing better than sharing a creative adventure. The theme of my tutorials and books is ‘lets have fun and lets keep creativity uncomplicated’ is the perfect opportunity to share. The links above will take you to my classes, books and blog. Photography is one of my newer hobbies. Ansell Adams a conservation photographer said ‘a photograph need not be explained, nor can it be contained in words’ inspires me to give nature a voice.
