I met Trisha several times and we are working closley as educators for different manufacturers. She is not only super fun to be around – she is also a wonderful workshop teacher and creates awesome things :)
I am fortunate that I get to create all day everyday! But there are certain times when I need the extra push. I LOVE to set my alarm and wake up an insanely early hour in the morning (4am) and get to work in my studio bright and early. I find that I am most creative during the wee hours when the world is quiet, my family is sleeping, my phone is not ringing and Facebook is usually pretty quiet then too :)
2. Do you ever create hidden meanings or messages in your work?
I don’t often have secret meanings in my projects but I do like to HIDE photos and journaling. I often incorporate flaps and pockets so I can fit additional pieces of the story that I want to include.
3. If your creative work were edible, what would it taste like?
hmmmmmmm…. Well, my motto is LUMPS AND BUMPS are a good thing and one can never have too many
layers so I am thinking it is like a wonderful trifle. So many different flavours and textures combined together to create a pallette pleasing treat! I wish I had a photo but then we would all want to eat!!!!! LOL!
4. What is your favorite creation?
TOUGH question! Because I am constantly creating, my favourite creation is usually the NEXT one I am about to create. BUT in my studio, I often display as much as I can on the walls and shelves so I can enjoy it for awhile longer before
tucking it away.
5. What is your biggest creative success so far and why?
Teaching and designing is such a blessing to me. I am thrilled to be designing or an Endorsed Educator for My Minds’ Eye, Graphic 45, Tattered Angels, Prima, Bazzill, 7 Gypsies, Teresa Collins Designs and the list goes on!
I feel so extremely fortunate to be able to share my passion for paper crafting with ladies (and the odd gentleman;) around the globe through the numerous classes that I teach for many of the hottest manyfacturers in the industry. It was not hard for me to leave my past career of working in a medical laboratory playing with body parts and fluids all day long! I am constantly blown away with the fact that people feel that I am good enough at my craft to bring me in to teach at their stores and events… it’s such a HUGE honour! I love to travel and meet new people so it is truly a match made in heaven:D
I look forward to some of my many adventures planned for this next year including several destinations in Canada, the USA, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic and Australia! I hope to see you at an event somewhere/ sometime soon!
