Biography

I have to do something creative everyday because it's good for my soul… it
makes me truly happy.

My husband and I have created Marks Paper Company. I earned my degree in
graphic arts (communication design) many years ago. In 2002, I began
scrapbooking and fell in love with this craft. In 2003, Dan and I attended CKU
Boston together. Yes, he took all the classes and participated in everything,
but leaves the scrapbooking to me.

I have been fortunate to have been published in several magazines. I have
participated in many contests, challenges and message boards. In 2005, we
opened a local brick-and-mortar scrapbooking store. It was a wonderful
experience. I enjoyed connecting with our customers creatively. I taught many
classes and had the opportunity to teach at CKC Valley Forge. I was hoping for
less "running a store" and for more opportunities to create and be creative. In
late 2007, we sold the store to begin preparations for Marks Paper Company.

I am inspired by so many things. Art is all around us. I see it in almost
everything. I will save a magazine page for a color in it. I love fabrics and
textures. A piece of tapestry, one of my husband's ties, a shopping bag, or the
texture of a rug will spark an idea. I hope that our papers will inspire you to
create something amazing.

Dan and I have been married for 17 years this June. We have two awesome
children who keep us very busy. We always work as a team in our marriage
and in raising our kids. Likewise, we have started Marks Paper Company
together.
