I started crafting at an early age and was often to be found knitting and sewing clothes for my dolls, later clothes for myself. A holiday in Shetland resulted in an interest in Cross Stitch, which soon became my main hobby. This led to making some very large pictures, including birth samplers for my two children, and also numerous small items for birthday cards.
After attending a workshop on glass painting with a friend, I widened the range of cards I made to include glass paints on acetate. The arrival of a magazine with a free-gift of decoupage paper led to many hours spent with scissors in hand. Decoupage cards now form the mainstay of my work.
