I`ve been in love with arts and crafts since I was a little girl. I did hold an actual needle when I was nine. For me, having a large collection of colors was considered a treasure. Now, after I had my masters degree and specialized, I decided to go after my passion, to self study art and colors. To try and explore as much as I can. My interests are: Card making, water-coloring, Copic marker coloring, and illumination.

  • One Stroke Certified Instructor by Donna Dewberry. 

 

I have been practicing different fields of art and craft since childhood such as coloring books and decorating the school notebooks and then tried the simple embroidery. My passion for art, colors and design reflected through professional career chosen which helped me in the development of all the technical aspects where I discovered a new world in art and crafts, including sewing, knitting and embroidery arts and then to the jewelry & beading  industry. Among all those art fields, I found myself in the paper crafting world, especially in the Art Journaling and Mixed Media because of its comfortable influence on the soul and the best techniques to self-express.
