About Me: I live in the Southern Highlands of New South Wales.
I have always had a great interest in the creative process, and am self taught.
I spent my childhood in the "outback", and learned to be very resourceful in my creative endeavours...as the nearest art supplies were about 300 miles away ! Red dirt , white shoe cleaner, and any scraps about the place served me well!
I have always enjoyed photography, starting with my Box Brownie camera when I was a teenager, but now have a digital camera!
I do hope you enjoy my querky card designs, I have certainly had fun creating them !
What lovely artwork Mary. I was astounded to see the materials you had to use along the way,
how inventive and interesting. Great cards.

I love the variety you have, but mostly like the mixed media pieces or at least that's what I'm guessing they are, like the one you're using for your profile picture. Really love that one! - Randy http://www.greetingcarduniverse.com/kindxpressions
