My life is good. I get to spend hours each day coloring and working with some of my favorite people. I live in the great state of Texas with my husband. We share four grown sons and two absolutely perfect grandchildren.

I've colored since I was old enough to hold a crayon. I was a stay at home Mom for 20+ years and found my way to in 2005. I was asked to be on the Splitcoast Dirty Dozen and fell in love with designing. I've enjoyed working with some wonderful stamp and papercrafting supply companies ever since. You can find my work regularly in CardMaker Magazine and assorted other books and magazines. I'm thrilled to be a part of Shinhan Art Materials.

I'm very honoured and excited to be working with ShinHan Art and their wonderful team of ARTisans. I've been involved in the paper crafting industry for just over 10 years, after a coworker brought some rubber stamps to play with over our lunch hour. Since then, I haven't looked back, and have been blessed to design for many fabulous companies in the last six years as well as share my love for the craft through teaching in my home, and at various papercrafting stores and conventions. I absolutely LOVE to colour and am totally impressed with the quality of the markers and the ease with which they blend. I'm still working on defining my style, which tends to fluctuate depending on my mood, but if I had to sum it up, I would say I prefer a clean and simple look. I have been published several times over the years in Making Memories Books, Tweety Jill Publications and Rubber Stamper Magazine.

When I'm not getting inky, I am a proud football mom to a very tall 15 year old and work full time as a Behavioural Therapist. If I can squeak in a little extra time, I enjoy reading, playing guitar, singing, fishing, and have just developed a passion for Hot Yoga! I'm from Kingston, Ontario, which is about halfway between Toronto and Montreal, but want to live in Texas with Jeanne and Bev when I grow up! I hope you enjoy the projects that I'm looking forward to sharing with you!

I’ve always had a passion for creating things and for playing with paper, pens etc. My passion for paper crafting really started a few years ago, when I discovered stamping. Things kind of spiraled from there, and now my main passion is colouring. The majority of my projects involve stamping and colouring, usually with markers.

When I'm not colouring or working, you can usually find me curled up with a good book, walking my dog, or indulging in a video-game.

I‘ve lived in Asia with my family since 2005, where we are in full-time ministry. I homeschool our 4 kiddos (3 boys and a girl), help out as a campus ‘Dr. Mom’ and also teach a basic health class yearly. I also love to cook and bake, sing and play the piano... I’ve always loved art, and stamping has been a wonderful escape from the pressures of cross-cultural living… I love winding down after a long day with my markers, watercolors, pencils, stamps, and cardstock all in reach. I started doing freelance design in 2002, blogging in 2006, joined my first design team in 2007, and found that I truly love creating one-of-a-kind cards, pushing my limits, and thinking outside the box. In addition to designing cards, I also design rubber stamp artwork, and create custom watermarks for photos posted online.

 I was born and raised in northeastern Washington where my family still lives. Growing up I had a love for horses, nature, and anything artsy … especially coloring! I can remember being a very young girl lying on the living room floor at my Grandma’s house coloring with my Mom. We were always doing something crafty as a family. We’d make Christmas ornaments, plastic sun catchers, paint-by-number masterpieces, design and build birdhouses, etc. Truly, it didn’t matter what we did, as long as it was crafty! In 1996 I received a Bachelors degree in Art from an Oregon university, and continue to find joy in the arts, crafts, and photography.

I currently live in Texas with my fiance on a small farm where we raise registered Dexter cattle. I work full-time for a computer software company (I work from a home-office), and in my personal time I enjoy gardening, take pride in my flock of chickens, and of course, I get CRAFTY!

I blog about life on the farm, crafting, and photography at

I am excited to be joining the ShinHan Art Materials ARTisan team!
