Combining fine art rubber stamping, mixed media techniques and paper crafting,these are art forms that I love to share. I like the idea of learning together -- sharing what I learn and learning from what others share.

She has created designs for Nordstrom and Hallmark according to her website. I'm so happy she is sharing her beautiful art with the stamping
