The Professional High Quality Coloring System

Hey there! I'm Jodi Clark, and I am super excited to be part of the Spectrum Noir Design Team! I have had a love for all things artsy since childhood. I always seemed to have a pad of paper laying around to draw in, and my interests ranged from drawing and coloring, to painting and needle crafts and beyond. I was a 4-H member for many years, and this let me into more art projects, including nature craft projects, clay and ceramics. After venturing into the paper crafting industry, with scrapbooking and card making, I found the world of rubber stamping. Through this craft, I discovered the line of Spectrum Noir markers, and I immediately set out to learn how to use them and incorporate them into my paper crafting. With the addition of the Craftwell eBrush airbrush system into my crafting arsenal, I have taken my Spectrum Noir markers into a whole new world, always trying to discover new and fun ways to use them. I share my world with my husband Ken, my three boys, ages 26, 24 and 17, a daughter-in-law, a daughter-in-law in waiting, and a beautiful 7 month old granddaughter . Oh, and I can't forget to mention our two spunky little Yorkies! I look forward to sharing some fun tips and techniques throughout the year, and I know you will come to love the Spectrum Noir product lines as much as I do! Visit my blog:
