When did you first start drawing/experimenting with inks/ crafting? I first started crafting seriously about 16 years ago but I've always had one or two crafty projects on the go since I was a child.

What made you start? I started seriously when my 4 children were small to de-stress

Are you a full-time artist or is this a hobby that you love to do? Its a hobby that has taken over my life and I love!

What inspires your art? Crafter's Companion products of course! I also like looking through Pinterest.

What’s your top tip for marker art/lettering/alcohol inks? With alcohol markers don't compare yourself to other people. Practise and enjoy.

What is your favourite Spectrum Noir product? The new Illustrators. They blend perfectly and are so easy to use.

Which Spectember theme/prompt have you chosen and why? I chose Birthday Celebrations, I've wanted to use my Cocktail Time set with the reinkers for awhile and this was the perfect opportunity.

When did you start working on the Spectrum Noir design team? I started working with the SN DT in May of this year.
