When did you first start drawing/experimenting with inks/ crafting? Always made things and sewn since I was a child. More ‘serious’ crafting for about 15 years.

What made you start? My Mum! She was always sewing or knitting and taught me.

What inspires your art? New products – I love seeing and getting to play with new products and seeing what they can do.

What’s your top tip for marker art/lettering/alcohol inks? Use the right card for each product to get the best and easiest results.

What is your favourite Spectrum Noir product? The Sparkle inks in pots, the new Christmas colours are beautiful and you can do many techniques with them.

Which Spectember theme/prompt have you chosen and why? 19 – Follow a Sketch because a sketch is an easy way to create a card layout and 21- Nature because nature is full of colour.

When did you start working on the Spectrum Noir design team? I started on the Spectrum Noir TV team over 3 years ago.
