I am the Creative Director/Product Manager for Simon Says Stamp. I am fortunate to have joined the Simon family in June of 2013 where I design stamps, stencils, dies and Flair all for sale in the Simon Says Stamp store.
I create monthly journal Art journal pages which are captured in full process/time laps video. I can be found on the Simon Says Stamp Blog every Tuesday with card inspiration and brand recognition and on the Simon You Tube channel where I create Quick Tip videos.
Previous to joining Simon Says Stamp, I was a designer for Hero Arts Rubber Stamps Inc for 24 years.
My commitments with Hero Arts included:
- Digital Manager
- Instructor for Retailer workshops
- Monthly Technique Creator for Heroarts.com
- Card artist for catalogs and supplements
- Hero Blog Contributor
- Education Assistant
- Product development
With the success of the Mid-Tone inks, I then worked with Stewart Superior to develop a permanent ink dauber using many of the Mid-Tone colors.
My preferred style is light collage. I say "light" because I like to use papers and images to create layered effects. In 2006, I authored a book called "Layers" which depicts simple projects using my signature style.
I live in the Village of Somonauk, a small farm community in Northern Illinois with my hubby Tom of 27 years, our two sons; Brooks and Scooter and tortoise Chester.
Thanks for your interest in what I do.
