Married for 9 years – I have 2 Boys – Eric is 7 and Michael is 5
I started designing about 2 1/2 years ago. I worked in advertising for 15 yrs for a food distributor company as graphic artist and I also got into Photography. My sister in law and I have a studio in Dundas which we do as a part time business. When looking for some graphics one day to design a montage for one of my photography clients I came across a digital scrapbooking site and I was hooked! I loved it. Shortly after I started designing and I haven’t stopped. I currently work full time for the school board so my time for designing is limited but every spare minute I have, I design. I also design papers for BoBunny when asked. They are wonderful to work with and have some great products. I am very honoured to sell at Oscraps where some of the best designers call home. They are wonderful ladies and very very talented.
My inspiration comes from everything around me…from magazines to clothing to on line illustration sites to other designers. I usually start with a theme. This kit started as Happy Spring and I go from there. I find an illustration I like and I start designing the papers, then I design all the elements and word art. I design a few pages and I usually add more elements which I realize are needed once I start a page. I design alot of Quick pages mostly because I am so time deprived that I purchase alot of them myself so I fiqure others are like me and want pages already done for them.
I have a Dell laptop and I also purchased a 24″ monitor. So I use both screens. It’s great when you have alot of programs open so you spread them over 2 screens.
I use Photoshop CS2 and Illustrator CS.
I have a Canon 50D and have spent a fortune on lenses. lol 24 – 70L and 70-200L IS
I do have a Bamboo tablet however…I learned if you cannot draw a tablet won’t help you hahahaha
My favourite kit is “Life is Beautiful” I love the colours of the kit and Life is truly beautiful!
