My Mixed Media Journey

I dipped my toes into mixed media a few years ago - and I fell in love with this type of art immediately! My creative background was in card making and then scrapbooking.

When I tried mixed media one of the first things I learned was THERE ARE NO RULES - just let me repeat that:


That's what I like...the freedom of making art that doesn't have to be perfect, pretty or neat! 

Some of the courses and people that have inspired and helped me:

  • Wanderlust on-line mixed media course

  • Dina Wakley Face the Facts workshop

YouTube is such a wonderful teaching resource.

Here's a selection of my favourite Youtubers! 

  • Carolyn Dube

  • Barbara Owen

  • Mike Deakin

  • Niamh Baly

  • Kasia and Jamie Avery

  • Karen Campbell

  • Bob Burridge

  • James Burke

  • Adele Toomey

You can, of course, use mixed media in all sorts of craft! 

Please enjoy a selection of my latest mixed media pieces.​
