1. How long have you been crafting?

I've been crafting as long as I can remember. I started scrapbooking, however, while I was in college.

2. Why did you start crafting?

Since childhood I've enjoyed crafts and that interest has evolved into a lifelong love of paper crafts and sewing. I found myself drawn to scrapbooking because it combines memory keeping with art, writing, design, photography and so many other things I enjoy.

3. How long have you been on the Fiskars design team?

Since June 2011.

4. What are your favorite craft activities?

Scrapbooking, card making, and sewing are my primary interests, however, I enjoy crafts of all kinds.

5. How do you define your crafting style/aesthetic?

I describe my style as clean and graphic with an emphasis on color.

6. What is your favorite time of day to craft?

I would craft around the clock if I could, but I'm typically a late night crafter.

7. What motivates/inspires you?

Graphic design is a huge influence, but my key source of inspiration is color. I draw on colors in photographs or a particular product to inspire my projects.

8. If you could only have one Fiskars® tool, what would it be and why?

It's so hard to pick just one! Nonetheless, my trusty Fiskars paper trimmer has been by my side since I started scrapbooking. The portability and reliability of the 12" SureCut Deluxe Craft Paper Trimmer makes it a crafter's best friend!
