About Me

Me & Mr Bentley

Craft designer, stamper, mixed media and altered artist, crafter, business owner, human being, friend, husband, Steampunk and shoulder to weep on!

I live in England in the picturesque county of South Yorkshire in the United Kingdom with my husband Ian and our best friend Mr Bentley the whippet.

I’ve been blogging since 2006, but only started blogging about card making, art journaling, mixed media and associated paper crafts in 2012. I started adding art-related videos on my YouTube channel on the 1st of March 2015 which has steadily grown each year since then.

I’ve been designing my own craft and card making products since 2008 with my hubby Ian. I also design craft & art products for other companies, some of which you may know…

I have guest presented my own products and designs on HOCHANDA TV, Create & Craft TV and also regularly presented an hour-long show on the British Craft Network Internet TV channel. I have taught mixed media, art journaling and card making classes all over the UK.

My main interests lay in art journaling, mixed media and altered art. Most of which I hope to share with you through my blog and website. In 2016 I started to suffer from (age related) rheumatoid arthritis quite badly in my elbows, knee joints and more recently my finger joints, however, I won’t let it stop or slow me down and I’m determined to keep creating through the pain.
