I love being able to explore my photography and to translate this into art. I love painting, particularly in acrylic and watercolour. I also love scrapbooking and cardmaking, and being able to apply interesting techniques to these projects. Learning and sharing with others with like interests, especially at Time to Create studio, has become an important part of my life.
