When did you first start drawing/experimenting with inks/ crafting? I started crafting 4 years ago & water-colouring 2 years ago.

What made you start? I wanted to create a scrapbook for my best friend of 20 years as a farewell gift, when I left France to come to Germany.

Are you a full-time artist or is this a hobby that you love to do? This is a hobby

What inspires your art? Other artists and everything around me!

What’s your top tip for marker art/lettering/alcohol inks? Experiment! But make sure you film it at the same time, so you remember what you did!

What is your favourite Spectrum Noir product? All of them! Its too hard to choose...but I reach out the most often for my Aquatint pens as I'm a watercolourist

Which Spectember theme/prompt have you chosen and why? Opposites Attract - I love playing with unusual colours
Sentimental - Because I get to spend time hand lettering with my 14-year-old daughter, who's a pro at it!
Show Us your sparkle - I love the added bling the sparkle pens give on my card!
Try something New - "Change is a constant" with me so I love experimenting and finding new ways to do things!
Ink It Up - I just got some metallic markers and ink pads and was dying to show them off!
Stamp It - I want to show that you can use different mediums to colour your stamps, not just with ink pads
Crazy for Colour - I love the vibrancy of my Aquamarkers and I wanted to show that you can create a beautiful watercolour picture with them, even without any experience as an artist!

When did you start working on the Spectrum Noir design team? In April 2019
