When did you first start drawing/experimenting with inks/ crafting? I dove into cardmaking about 2.5 years ago

What made you start? I always loved crafting and used to make our holiday and birthday cards. When researching ideas, it all just snowballed.

Are you a full-time artist or is this a hobby that you love to do? I just returned to work full-time, but with two young girls, crafting has always been a wonderful hobby that I have shared with them too.

What inspires your art? Everything! Things I see in nature, pictures in my daughters' books, movies, literally everything.

What’s your top tip for marker art/lettering/alcohol inks? Patient and practice; don't expect to be a pro immediately. Add shadow slowly and blend.

What is your favourite Spectrum Noir product? I super love my AquaBlend pencils

Which Spectember theme/prompt have you chosen and why? 18th: Under the Sea, because I love all things marine; I have been a coastal girl all of my life. I've always felt a connection to the sea.

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