About Me


Hello and welcome to my website. As a professional crafter, I'm at my most content when creating beautiful things that are perfect for giving or receiving and I love to share my handcrafted creations in both the virtual and the real world. 

I've been crafting in one form or another for as long as I can remember, starting with the famous 'Blue Peter makes' in the 1960s and 1970s. Although my early interest was in knitting and crochet, I quickly moved on to papercrafting, particularly quilling (paper filigree), which I really enjoyed doing until it became a bit too trying on the eyes!

A few years ago, while channel-hopping with the remote control, I came across Create and Craft TV and it was there that I discovered digital crafting. This opened up a whole new world to me as I'd always felt frustrated by the fact that I can't draw. Suddenly I had all this amazing artwork at my fingertips. As a result, I now have a new career as a designer as well as still being a crafter and much of my craft work incorporates my own digital designs. 

I am more than happy to take on commissions if you are looking for a handcrafted greetings card or other handcrafted item that you would like to be created for a special event, occasion or person. You can see some of the bespoke cards that I have designed and made to order on the Card Gallery page.

Thank you very much for taking the time to look at my crafting website and I do hope you enjoy your visit.
