I’ve always had a creative background, and a love of all things paper so the craft industry just seemed a natural fit to me. In 2001, I took a leap of faith and guest hosted the first live one hour scapbooking show on QVC. From that very first show things snowballed. I was invited to be the keynote speaker at CHA in Los Angeles California speaking to owners and ceo’s of the card and craft manufacturing sector from all over the world about trends in the European Market.
I started a design and plastic manufacturing company and for 12 years I was guest hosting my own and other companies products on Qvc, Ideal World and Create and Craft shopping channels. During this time I wrote a book on scrapbooking and many articles for different craft publications and have taught and presented throughout Europe and America
At some point I decided to launch my own magazine which became a national publication, launching on Create and Craft., this became my love, when I stepped out of the crafting world I vowed if it were ever possible I would go back to publishing again.
2018 saw the birth of The Hull Hub and a return for me to what I love to do.
I have been very blessed to be able to share what I love to do and have a career out of it over the years. I still consider my family my greatest achievement.
Thanks to all of you for making this possible
