7 Things about me.

I studied art in high school and majored in art at teachers college.
I have worked in the craft and art industry for over 20 year. I was a craft rep, visiting craft shops every day. That was hard. I have managed an Embroidery Warehouse and Jewellery Supply Warehouse. I have worked in craft shops and also taught craft.

My mother and grandmother were good sewers and so I made my own cloths from the age of 13. They only helped if I got stuck. I bought my first dress when I was 23.

I have 3 sisters and 1 brother.

I have lived in Brisbane all my life, except for a two year break when my husband and I went to Pt Kembla, NSW.

I am at present doing a 2 year coarse on airbrushing. At the end of the coarse I will have a certificate 2 qualifications.
There are very few crafts I cannot do, because being in the industry, if you know it you can sell it. I am also addicted to anything new in craft, but once I have mastered it to my satisfaction, I am on to the next thing. Doodling seems to be one I am sticking with even when trying new thing. I love to combine crafts, and experiment with doing different things than what the product was originally meant for.
