Sues Bio

I am a self taught mixed media/altered art/rubber stamping papercrafter!
I started out as an embroiderer taking a City & Guilds qualification but discovered working with paper and soon moved over!
I like to mix and match media in my work so you will still see the fabric/haberdashery influences in some of what I do.

I have been fortunate enough to have my work published over the years in several UK mags particularly Craft Stamper; Somerset Studio and other Stampington publications in the States and in Art Specially mag in Holland and I have recently had my first book published.....
Decorative Handmade Books......by Search Press.

I have Sue's book on my Christmas list.... hope that Santa is reading this...lol.... or my Kids...lol.
Please DO pay Sue a visit you can check out her creative blog over HERE
Now I would recommend that you get yourself a cupa and a packet of chocolate biscuits 'cos you could be there sometime.
Sues Blog title is from the famous Lewis Caroll

JABBERWOCKY
Lewis Carroll(from Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There, 1872)
`Twas brillig, and the slithy toves Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.

"Beware the Jabberwock, my son!
The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun The frumious Bandersnatch!"
He took his vorpal sword in hand:
Long time the manxome foe he sought --So rested he by the Tumtum tree, And stood awhile in thought.
And, as in uffish thought he stood,
The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame,
Came whiffling through the tulgey wood, And burbled as it came!
One, two! One, two! And through and through
The vorpal blade went snicker-snack!
He left it dead, and with its head
He went galumphing back.
"And, has thou slain the Jabberwock? Come to my arms, my beamish boy!
O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!' He chortled in his joy.

`Twas brillig, and the slithy toves Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.
Thank you sooooo very much Sue for sharing your time and wonderful talent with us.
