I'm a self taught card maker and I've been crafting for several years. It's a wonderful hobby and I'm lucky enough to demonstrate for docrafts! As well as making crafty things, I also enjoy sketching and painting (in pencil, pastel, charcoal, watercolour and acrylic) which I've been doing since school. I joined the Hawley Art Group in 1999 when my lovely daughter was just 10 months old. We meet once a month for art in various mediums. I love it! I also work full time within an Accounts Department, so arts and crafts is a complete contrast from my usual working day.
