To kickstart my return to blogging I’m taking part in Just A Card‘s #indieweek.

Day 1: All About Me.

Who I am: My name is Emma, I’m in my late thirties, born and raised in the same area of NW London in which I still live (which makes me something of a rarity these days I think).  I have a dog, a somewhat obsessive love of JK Rowling’s Wizarding World, and the attention span of a butterfly.  I tend to write the same way as I speak; waffling, going off on tangents, and rarely using one word when three can be shoehorned into the same place.  You’ll get used to it.

What I do: Flit from project to project because I have about as much focus as a concussed duckling? I kid, although in truth that’s actually pretty accurate.  I do turn my hand to a variety of crafts (including lino printing, print gocco, embroidery, and knitting and crochet) but predominately I’m a bookbinder and painter.  My style varies quite a lot (check out my Instagram to see all my paintings, and my Etsy shop to view my notebooks and other stationery) too and depends vastly on my mood.  I like that my work is versatile, but I have to admit that it makes it a little difficult to build a recognisable brand/look!

How I do what I do: Ok, you’ll have to pop back regularly to find out.  One of my intentions going forward is to share the design and making process for some of my past work.

 

Where I do what I do: I have a studio at the end of my garden, and that’s where messy things like bookbinding and printing take place.  And I have a desk in my bedroom, which is where I paint (because the studio is lovely but the light is much better in the loft!).

And that’s me!  Do follow me on Instagram, and follow Just A Card too!
