When did you first start drawing/experimenting with inks/ crafting? I started crafting 16 years ago while on Maternity leave but only started experimenting with ink around 7 years ago.

What made you start? I wanted to be able to create projects that I enjoyed and also wanted a hobby that helped me relax and feel accomplished.

Are you a full-time artist or is this a hobby that you love to do? I craft most days and if I dont I feel out f sorts.I would say it's a hobby thats starting to become a way of life, maybe one day it will be a career.

What inspires your art? I take inspiration from lots of thigns around me, nature, fashion and rends influence my crafting but I can also be found making out of season projects for example I tend to make summer coloured projects in the cooler months when I need a fix of sunshine.

What’s your top tip for marker art/lettering/alcohol inks? My top tip for Marker art is to always use the correct paper/card and work on a flat absorbent surface so that the ink doesn't wick back up into your work and effect your colouring.

What is your favourite Spectrum Noir product? At the moment it would be the water reactive inks, I used them for blending, painting, splatting and even brayering.

Which Spectember theme/prompt have you chosen and why? "Create a background" because it allows me the freedom to be creative and think outside of the box.

When did you start working on the Spectrum Noir design team? May 2019, I'm still a newbie but having so much fun.
