I am happily married with two teenage children, and we all live in a rural village in the north of England, UK, with various small animals. I am also a crafts tutor teaching in the UK and other parts of Europe, and love to share my passion for all things arty with others. I have contributed regularly to various magazine in the UK and USA, and have been on several design teams. I currently design rubber stamps, art printing plates, and stencils for Carabelle Studio. I am a helping artist for DecoArt, and also contributing artist for Gel Press and produce FREE instructional videos every month. 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).
