We are happy to introduce to you our second Design Team member for 2017.
She is also a Christian, widow, mom to 3 beautiful daughters, and granny to 6 absolutely delightful, grandchildren. She was born in the UK in a small town called Tunstall, one of the 5 “pottery” towns in Staffordshire. Her dad made a bold decision just after she was born, to emigrate to South Africa, and she therefore considers herself a South African, with British and Dutch blood lines.
She grew up on a farm just outside of Johannesburg, where she spent more time ‘outside’ than she did in the house. Because of the distance of the farm to the nearest city, she was unable to attend any formal art classes, but can vividly remember always scribbling and watching her dad draw. All her senior class geography books were decorated with detailed, coloured pencil drawings, of geological formations!
Her crafting life really took off just after she was married, and she suspects she that she has probably tried every new craft that has hit the SA scene! However it was only after she turned 55, that she attended oil painting classes. Apart from painting, scrapbooking, her other hobbies are genealogy (already traced family lines back to the 1600’s), mosaic, card making, and digistamp designing.
She also owns and manage the only South African online store for digistamps –http://www.digistamps4joy.co.za/eshop, run the blog for this, as well as the Facebook page and a large global Design team.
